In Ben Stein’s column this week, he offers ideas for smartly investing in small caps, which have outperformed the broader market.
The article makes me want to buy $1,500 of iShares S&P Smallcap 600 Value [IJS] right now through ShareBuilder and hold onto the investment as long as possible. In the article Ben talks about the ratio of book value to market price, but I’m not sure what to look for in this figure. For this particular Exchange Traded Fund, the price to book ratio is 1.78. Is that good?
