6 Stocks With Margin of Safety and Growing Book Value

EBIX makes the list

December 14, 2018 | About:

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

BV/S 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 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 Berkeley Group Holdings PLC (BKGFF) has grown 13% over the last 10 years. The price-book ratio is 1.7 and the price to tangible book value is 1.6.
