More Valuation

Price To Book: 14.4
Not so great value. Low Price to Book means better value. A P/B value of 5 or less is great. But consider other metrics and maybe the growth and yield makes it worth it.
EV to EBITDA: 15.09
Decent Value. A low EV to EBITDA ratio is great. Ideally, under 10. Under 17 is okay.
