Stocks That Trade At Book Value

Here is a link to an article by Norm Rothery - “Investing by the book”

It should be no surprise that all of the companies identified by Norm are currently out of favour and will definitely only suit investors with a long time horizon as it may take the market a while to realize the value of the company.

I find the best measure of the value of a stock is the price to sales ratio.
