Asset value

The net market value of a corporation's assets on a per-share basis, not the market value of the shares. A company is undervalued in the market when asset value exceeds market value.

Asset Value

In stocks, the market value of a company's assets per share. Asset value does not take into account the share price; one calculates the asset value by adding together the total value of the company's tangible and intangible assets and dividing by the shares outstanding. Fundamental analysts may use a company's asset value to determine whether it is undervalued or overvalued. A company with a share price below its asset value is considered undervalued and fundamental analysts may recommend buying shares in that company. On the other hand, a company with a share price above the asset value is overvalued and fundamental analysts may recommend selling it. See also: Net asset value.
