5 Stocks With Rising Book Values

These companies have grown their book values over the past decade

September 13, 2017 | About:

The following companies have grown their book values per share (BV/S) over the last 10 years.

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

The BV/S of Ever-Glory International Group Inc. (NASDAQ:EVK) has grown 5% over the last 10 years. The price-book (P/B) ratio is 0.4 and the price to tangible book value is 0.5.
