The P/B ratio, or price-to-book ratio, is used to compare a company's current market price to its book value. It is calculated by dividing the company's current share price by its book value per share.

Typical P/B ratios vary by industry. Value stocks tend to have low price-to-book ratios, and growth stocks high ones.
