Price-to-Book Ratio (P/B Ratio)

Price-to-Book Ratio (P/B Ratio)

A company’s price to book ratio can be calculated by taking its current stock price and dividing by the book value per share (assets minus liabilities divided by the number of shares outstanding). Price to book is widely used as a core input into analysts’ valuations and stock comparisons. Lower ratios infer better value.
