19 Dividend Achievers Below Book Value

In a rising stock market, all eyes are on the income statement. But in a flat or falling market, the balance sheet moves into the spotlight. Investors want to know the real core accounted values of the company. 

If you look at the book value per share, you can easily identify stocks that are traded below their accounted assets.

If a company’s P/B ratio is less than one, the shares are selling for less than the value of the company’s assets.

What Is Book Value?

Book value is a measure of all of a company's assets: stocks, bonds, inventory, manufacturing equipment, real estate, etc. In theory, book value should include everything down to the pencils and staples used by employees, but for simplicity's sake companies generally only include large assets that are easily quantified.

Today I’ve screened my Dividend Achievers list by stocks with a current P/B ratio below one. 19 stocks matched exactly my criteria. The attached list shows all of them, sorted by the lowest ratio to the highest.

Here are the highest yielding results in detail…
