Here is what your report should provide for Maria:

• A summary of the financial strength of the company
through your analysis of the price/earnings and price/
book ratios.

The CFO for ABC Healthcare Corporation assessed the
market value by reviewing its price/earnings ratios. The price/
earnings ratio determines the market value of a stock as
compared to the company’s earnings. The price/earnings
ratios are listed in the chart below. To calculate the price/
earnings ratio, the CFO took the earnings per share and
divided that into the market value. As an example, this means
that in 2019 investors were willing to pay $12.10 for $1 of


2019 2018 2017

Price 83.62 83.62 83.62

Per Share 6.91 7.87 9.15

2019 2018 2017

Price 83.62 83.62 83.62

Per Share 6.91 7.87 9.15


12.10 10.63 9.14

To further assess market value, the CFO looked at book value
per share. The book value per share ratio is the per share
value of a company in terms of the equity available to
stockholders. The book values per share over the past three
years are listed in the chart below:

Ratio 2019 2018 2017

Price 83.62 83.62 83.62

Value per

199.1 209.05 226

Price to
Book Ratio .42 .40 .37

The price-to-book ratio (P/B ratio) compares a firm’s market
capitalization to its book value. It’s calculated by dividing the
company’s stock price per share by book value per share.
Here, for fiscal year 2019, the book value per share ratio was

0.42. This explains that investors were willing to pay $0.42 for
$1 of book value equity. Price to book value is an important
measure to see how much equity shareholders are paying for
the net assets value of the company. P/B ratios under 1 are
typically considered solid investments.

• Based on your analysis, what is your general perception
of the company’s financial strength? Is it performing well

• Given your review, how can it maximize shareholder
value? What are focus areas for enhancing shareholder
value for the long term? What short-term steps might be
necessary for longer-term gains?

• In your analysis you may choose to look at competitive
data. You may calculate ratios to gain a true comparison.

• After conducting your analysis, provide at least three
recommendations to Maria that maximize shareholder
