Do you consider yourself a value investor? If so, we ran a screen looking for potentially undervalued oil and gas drilling stocks that may interest you.

We screened a universe of oil and gas drilling stocks for those that appear undervalued relative to the Graham Number. The Graham Number is a measure of maximum fair value created by the "godfather of value investing," Benjamin Graham.

It is based on a stock's EPS and book value per share (BVPS).

Graham Number = SQRT(22.5 x TTM EPS x MRQ BVPS)

The equation assumes that P/E should not be higher than 15, and P/BV should not be higher than 1.5. Stocks trading well below their Graham Number may be undervalued.
