Barrett Business Services, Inc. P/B ratio
P/B ratio of BBSI for past 10 years: annual, quarterly and twelve month trailing (TTM) including P/B ratio growth rates and interactive chart.
Measures the relationship between price and book value per share. Book value is the equity or owner's capital that is invested in a business. If a stock has a price of $10 and a book value per share of $10, the ratio is 1. Stock selling below a P/B of 1 can be a bargain, as the market price has declined below the net asset value of the business. It is more applicable to financial companies like banks and insurers, as their assets and liabilities are valued at market and the book value thus more accuraterly represents reality.
