    Yes, BUT...

    Theory and the real world don't always agree. Net book value is what? Share holder equity, the difference between assets and liabilities. Much of those assets are intangibles and it�s questionable as to the price that they are actually worth. With all the aggressive accounting that has occurred in the past decade the numbers are all suspect.

    Moreover, the balance sheet is only a snap shot of the financial state. How are the trends? Why is net book the minimum if it continually trends down? People in the market are trying to predict the future.

    In short the net book is only one indicator that can be used as a rule of thumb, but must be considered with a myriad of other factors.

    What would you say is the biggest factor? I might proffer that it�s the micro economic condition of the telecom industry.
