- By Alberto Abaterusso

When screening the market for value opportunities among capital-intensive businesses, investors may want to look at stocks whose price-to-tangible-book-value ratios are more appealing than their industry medians.

The price-to-tangible-book-value ratio is preferred to the price-book ratio for these publicly traded companies, as the assessment of their businesses primarily derives from tangible assets.


China Yuchai International Ltd

The first stock that meets the criteria is China Yuchai International Ltd (NYSE:CYD), a Singapore-based manufacturer and assembler of diesel and natural gas engines for the markets in the People's Republic of China and internationally.

China Yuchai has a price-to-tangible-book-value ratio of 0.53, which is more compelling than the industry median of 2.10 and ranks higher than 91% of the 2,408 competitors that operate in the industrial products industry.

The share price was $16.13 as of May 12. The tangible book value per share was approximately $30.64 as of the June 2020 quarter.

The stock price has risen by 36.2% over the past year for a market capitalization of $659.04 million and a 52-week range of $11.03 to $20.49.

Anhui Conch Cement's price-to-tangible-book-value ratio of 1.34 appeals more than the industry median of 1.58, ranking higher than 165 companies out of a total of 979 competitors that operate in the building materials industry.
