Defensive Investor Description

In the book, Graham identifies two categories of investors; the defensive and the enterprising.

According to Graham, a defensive investor buys from a “diversified list of leading common stocks” and ensures that the price paid “is not unduly high as judged by applicable standards.”

We display such a list based on the requirements spelled out by Graham.
