5 Undervalued Stocks With Growing Book Value

Aflac tops the list

January 09, 2018 | About:

According to the GuruFocus All-In-One Screener, the following companies have grown their book value per share (BV/S) over the past decade.

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 Aflac Inc. (NYSE:AFL) has grown 13% over the past 10 years. The price-book (P/B) ratio is 1.6 and the price to tangible book value is 1.6.
