Business partnerships at favorable terms

This goal may be achieved by investing in statistically cheap stocks with wide diversification. I believe Ben Graham embraced this approach.

To start the search I used the following rules to help measure a way to find opportunistic prices.

1)(Cash +AR – Total liabilities)/Price >50%
2) Share count from 2004 to 2009/TTM >1 representing a reduction of share count or stability
3)Positive EBITDA and CFFO for the trailing 12 months
4)Market capitalization from 19 to 189 million
5)Reducing debt from 2007 to TTM
