Graham did not expect investors to accurately determine the company's future income. Instead, he figured that if the margin between earnings and fixed charges was large enough, investors would be protected from an unexpected decline in the company's income. Establishing a margin of safety concept for bonds was not too difficult. The real test was Graham's ability to adapt the concept for common stocks. Graham reasoned that a margin of safety existed for common stocks if the price of the stock was below its intrinsic value.

Graham noted that "satisfactory" is a subjective term. He did say that return can be any amount, however low, as long as the investor acts with a degree of intelligence and adheres to the full definition of investment. An individual who conducts a thorough financial analysis based on sound logic, indicating a reasonable rate of return without compromising safety of principal, would be considered, by Graham's definition, an investor, not a speculator. Had it not been for the bond market's poor performance, Graham's definition of investing might have been overlooked.
