6 Stocks With Rising Book Value

Kroger makes the list

January 15, 2019 | 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 The Kroger Co. (KR) has grown 9% over the last 10 years. The price-book ratio is 3.0 and the price to tangible book value is 6.7.
