5 Bargain Stocks Boosting Book Value

2 banks on the list

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

Book value per share 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 book value per share may not reflect the company’s true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.

The book value per share of Bank OZK (OZK) has grown 7.30% over the last 10 years. The price-book ratio is 0.83 and the price-tangible book value is 3.30.
