confused 150AMONG THE variety of metrics to gauge the value of a stock, there is the price-to-book value (P/B). It is the ratio of the stock price over its book value of equity.

This is the value of a company's assets minus its liabilities.

In some  circumstances, not all, P/B is a good starting point for investors to delve deeper into the fundamentals of a company with the view of investing in the stock if their due diligence gives them the conviction to do so.

We extracted the following table of 50 low P/B stocks from Bloomberg for your reading pleasure. 

At the top of the table are a number of stocks of such ultra-low P/B they look either very attractive to you (for further investigation) or very suspicious. (Please verify the data before taking any investment decision!).

Many of the 50 stocks listed are S-chips. We highlight in blue the stocks that are clearly Singapore-run. 

We added another metric -- P/E -- to help you in sizing up the company at this initial stage of the due diligence process.  And we added columns of data on the net profit and market cap. 


Happy investigating!
