5 Low Price To Book Value Stocks With Attractive Assets

 

2. Kronos Worldwide Inc. ( KRO): Engages in the production and marketing of titanium dioxide pigments in North America and Europe. Market cap at $2.23B

P/B is 2. ROE is at 32.17%. TTM Return on Assets at 16.04% vs. an industry average at 8.87%.

Despite the attractive ratios, Kronos lost a lot of value after having a bad quarter.

 

3. Lear Corp. ( LEA): Engages in the design and manufacture of automotive seat systems and related components for automobiles and light trucks. Market cap at $4.78B, most recent closing price at $49.32. 

P/B is 1.79. ROE is at 19.17%. TTM Return on Assets at 16.72% vs. an industry average at 7.35%.

This company has appeared in our screens before. Historically, it's traded very low on a P/E basis and has looked undervalued. The company has generated high earnings but that has corresponded with an increasingly high share price.

 

4. WellCare Health Plans, Inc. ( WCG): Provides managed care services for government-sponsored healthcare programs in the United States. Market cap at $2.23B

P/B is 1.75. ROE is at 19.24%. TTM Return on Assets at 8.49% vs. an industry average at 2.9%.

WCG has benefited well from the current political environment. It's revenue is generated almost evenly between Medicaid and Medicare services around the east coast and the south.

 

5. Yahoo! Inc. ( YHOO): Operates as a digital media company that delivers personalized digital content and experiences, across devices and worldwide. Market cap at $22.87B

P/B is 1.57. ROE is at 29.12%. TTM Return on Assets at 23.51% vs. an industry average at 8.56%.

Yahoo is a familiar company with outstanding returns to equity. At 29.12%, ROE may be one reason why this stock has gone up 23% in the last 6 months despite otherwise unappealing trends over the last 5 years. For comparison, Facebook has an ROE of a third of just one percentage point.
