What you need to know about P/B Ratio.
Even though many investors prefer price-to-earnings and price-to-sales when weighing up whether to invest, P/B helps them identify low-priced stocks that might have high-growth potential in the future. It's worked out by dividing the current closing price of a stock by the latest quarter's book value per share. A P/B Ratio of less than one means the stock is trading at less than its book value - in other words it is under-priced. If the ratio is more than one, many investors consider the stock to be overpriced.
