Price-to-Book

A ratio of the share price of a publicly-traded company to its book value per share, which is the company's total asset value less the value of its liabilities. The P/B is a ratio of investor sentiment on the value of a stock to its actual value according to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. A high P/B means either that investors have overvalued the company, or that its accountants have undervalued it.
