6 Guru Stocks Boosting Book Value

iRobot makes the list

January 20, 2020 | About:

According to the GuruFocus All-In-One Screener, a Premium feature, the following companies have grown their book value per share over the past decade.

Book value per share is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding. Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if a company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and is equal to total assets minus total liabilities. Since the book value per share may not reflect the company’s true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.

All statistics in this article are as of the date of writing, Jan. 20, 2020.
