How to Calculate Price to Book Ratio

Price to Book (P/B) Ratio is a financial ratio used to compare a stock's market value with the book value. It is also known as the market-to-book ratio or the price-to-equity ratio. A higher ratio indicates that the company has better future prospects. P/B can be calculated as follows:
