Hello,
I just tried running the numbers for Graham's NCAV strategy which has the following criteria

Last Price >= 2	
Price/Book Value <= 0.8	
Price/Cash Flow Ratio >= 0.1	
Price/Sales Ratio <= 0.3	
Debt to Equity Ratio <= 0.1						

and ended up with the following stocks

Symbol	Company Name	Rank	Last Price	Price/Book Value	Price/Cash Flow Ratio	Price/Sales Ratio	Debt to Equity Ratio		NCAV	67% NAV	Qualifies
CLST	CellStar Corporation	1	4.62	0.56	79.2	0.06	0.07		8.416	5.638	y
ELXS	ELXSI Corporation	2	3	0.28	33.5	0.14	0.07		12.05	8.0735	y
GIII	G-III Apparel Group, Ltd.	3	6.64	0.68	29.8	0.23	0		9.59	6.4253	n
JLMC	JLM Couture, Inc.	4	3.38	0.77	16.2	0.26	0		4.421	2.962	n
PATK	Patrick Industries, Inc.	5	10.15	0.77	6.7	0.16	0.08		12.9361	8.66	n
KEQU	Kewaunee Scientific Corporation	6	8.66	0.78	7.2	0.25	0.01		10.68	7.1556	n
INMD	IntegraMed America, Inc.	7	7.23	0.73	4.8	0.24	0.1		9.444	6.32748	n
	

As the chart shows only two stocks(CLST and ELXS) qualified where the current price < 67% NCAV.

But the other indicators for these two stocks are negative. Is there something missing here or Iam just doing it all wrong. Please comment.

Thanks!!
