A closely related ratio is called Price-to-Tangible-Book. The difference between Price-to-Tangible-Book and Price-to-Book Ratio is that book value other than intangibles are used in the calculation.


Explanation

Unlike valuation ratios relative to the earning power such as PE Ratio, PS Ratio or Price-to-Free-Cash-Flow, the Price-to-Book Ratio measures the valuation of the stock relative to the underlying asset of the company.

The Price-to-Book Ratio works the best for the businesses that earn most of their profit from their assets, e.g. banks and insurance companies.


Be Aware

Some businesses have very light assets, such as software companies or insurance agencies. The Price-to-Book Ratio does not work well for these companies. Some companies even have negative equity, so the Price-to-Book Ratio cannot be applied to them.
