Is there any difference between book value and shareholders equity?
No, Shareholders Equity, ATotal ssets Minus Total Liabilities, and Book Value all produce the same number.
many times book value is expressed as a per share ratio (and you can get a fully converted book value to a fully diluted share count ratio). Sometimes is is useful to compare the book value/share to the price/share. I have always seen shareholder equity expressed as an absolute number (not a ratio). So it's assets - liabilities (but sometimes you have to take apart the financial statement to truly get at all the assets and liabilities).RWS
