By looking at the above, we can see that the top 3 high volume stocks trading lower than their book value are BAC, C, and JPM – all of them are bank stocks. Hmmm….

Notes

  • The “volume” represents the average daily volume.
  • The higher the percentage of the book value is, the less attractive is the stock (from the “book value perspective”).

A price per book value lower than 1 means that the stock is currently trading lower than what its company believes its worth. (Note: Here’s a list of high volume stocks trading below their book values). [...]
