5 Book Value Bargains

Description:

The stocks of these five companies pass a few hurdles when it comes to book value, or shareholder's equity.

Book value, roughly speaking, is a company's assets less its liabilities. The lower the price-to-book ratio, the cheaper a company looks relative to its net worth. The metric may not be perfect, but it's one that many value investors and contrarians use in their research. The price-to-book multiples for these five stocks are all at or below 1.3 and stand at a discount to their five-year historic averages. These stocks also have relatively low ratios of price-to-tangible book, or book value measured using only physical assets (buildings, machines and so on). Security analysts expect all of these companies to be profitable within two fiscal years.
