The Price-to-Book folio is designed for investors seeking moderately aggresive capital appreciation in return for moderate aggressive volatility.


The Price-to-Book folio is constructed from the largest 100 companies with the lowest price-to-book ratio, utilizing the principles of fundamental investment analysis.

The price-to-book ratio (P/B) is a means of valuing a company. It is calculated by dividing the stock price by the company’s current book value per share. Low price-to-book ratios may mean that the company stock is cheap relative to the liquidation values of its assets.
