AuthorTopic: P/BV for software companies

I am preparing for L2 CFA, and I found an explanation to a question in Schweser that I don't agree with:

The price/book ratio is best for valuing companies with small amounts of fixed assets, like software makers.

My question is: how is that true, when most assets of software companies are intangible assets, thats value is easily manipulated?

I would be thankful for explanation.

No, I agree with you. I dont think co. like Microsoft has lot of tangible assets.

P/BVPS is motly appropriate for company with the tangible assets, specaily those who have assets like I would say like, Walmart, also banks who have lots of assets such as security vs. their deposits,or libilities.

Can you also cite the reference so I lie to look it up as in Sch notes? Thanks.

L II Can...

P.S: Just posted a query reg. resuming an existing practice test, I finally figured it and find my incomplete practice exam under, 'Exam Manager.'
