Price to Book Value Ratio (P/B Ratio)

This ratio indicates how expensive or cheap a stock is compared to its 'book-value'. The book value of a company is calculated as Total Assets minus Intangible Assests & Liabilites. The book value per share is calculated as:

Book Value per share = Book Value/total number of shares

Price to Book Value ratio (P/B ratio) = Stock Price / Book Value Per share

A P/B ratio of more than one indicates that the company is being valued by investors for its intangible assets or future growth potential. Typically internet and technology companies tend to have higher P/B ratio as compared to manfacturing companies.
