6 Companies Growing Their Book Value

Alliance Resource Partners tops the list

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. 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 Alliance Resource Partners LP (NASDAQ:ARLP) has grown 10.40% over the last 10 years. The price-book ratio is 2.21 and the price to tangible book value is 2.45.
