UNF clears Graham's qualitative criteria for the Defensive investment grade. Therefore, its Intrinsic Value is equivalent to its Defensive Price. However, UNF's Intrinsic Value(%) evaluates to less than 100% — 49.38% — because its Previous Close is higher than its Intrinsic Value.

Note: This does not necessarily make UNF a bad investment. Graham specified additional categories for Blue Chips, Utilities & Financials, and Special Situations. Graham's Intrinsic Value calculations need to be adjusted for current bond yields as well. The Graham Ratings tab gives an overall picture of UNF's Margin of Safety.
