Evaluating a company’s market valuation in relation to its book value is important to identify undervalued stocks. This is where the P/B ratio, also known as the Price-to-Book ratio or PB ratio, comes into play. It is calculated by dividing a company’s market share by its book value. A PB ratio of below 1 typically suggests an undervalued stock. In this article, let’s look at stocks with low share price-to-book ratio in the Nifty 500 Universe.

To conclude

While a low PB ratio indicates undervalued stocks, it also indicates that there are foundational problems with the company, because of which it is not showing earnings. Hence, it is worthwhile to consider other metrics along with an analysis of the company’s past work to gauge whether the stock is undervalued or not. You can also consult a financial analyst before investing. And for deeper analysis, #TickertapeHaiNa!
