According to the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener, a Premium feature, the following guru-owned stocks have grown their book value per share over the past decade through Oct. 12.

Book value per share is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding. Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if a company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and is equal to total assets minus total liabilities.

The automotive retailing company has a market cap of $640 million and an enterprise value of $871 million.

According to the discounted cash flow calculator, the stock is undervalued and is trading with a 17.69% margin of safety at $93.55. The share price has been as high as $129.7 and as low as $35.18 in the last 52 weeks. As of Monday, the stock was trading 27.87% below its 52-week high and 165.92% above its 52-week low.
