- The P/E of 10.8 multiplied by the P/NTA of 1.8 is 19.0. Being less than the Benjamin Graham benchmark of 22.5 the stock appears undervalued.
- "An earnings-to-price yield of at least twice the triple-A bond"; the stock's earning yield of 9.3% is 9.9 times the triple-A bond yield of 0.9%.
- The P/E of 10.8 is 0.2 times the highest average P/E of 56.9 in the last five years. This is a value criterion, according to Benjamin Graham who described as a value criterion "A P/E ratio down to less than four-tenth of the highest average P/E ratio the stock attained in the most recent five years".
- "A dividend yield of at least two-thirds the triple-A bond yield"; the stock's dividend yield is 7.8 times the triple-A bond yield of 0.9%.
-"Total debt less than tangible book value"; total debt of USD25 billion is less than tangible book value of USD51.1 billion.-"Earnings growth over the most recent ten years of 7% compounded - that is a doubling of earnings in a five-year period"; the earnings per share have more than doubled in the last 5 years.
