MercadoLibre  (NAS:MELI) Book Value per Share Explanation

Usually a company's book value and Tangible Book per Share may not reflect its true value. The assets may be carried on the balance sheets at the original cost minus depreciation. This may underestimate the true economic values of the assets. It also may over-estimate their true economic value because the assets can become obsolete.
