According to the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener, a Premium feature, the following real estate companies have grown their book value per share over the past decade through July 17.

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


Since the book value per share may not reflect the company's true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.

Arbor Realty Trust

The book value per share of Arbor Realty Trust Inc. (ABR) has grown 6.8% over the past 10 years. The price-book ratio is 0.95 and the price-tangible book ratio is 1.59.
