Term Definition
Margin of safety

A concept strongly emphasized by Benjamin Graham, which suggests to only buy a stock when the market price is significantly below the company's intrinsic value. By applying a margin of safety, you reduce the downside risk of subpar future performance, while increasing surprises on the upside when the company performs better than expected.
