6 Guru Stocks With a Growing Book Value

Kroger makes the list

December 31, 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 LKQ Corp. (NASDAQ:LKQ) has grown 16% over the last 10 years. The price-book ratio is 1.58.
