Explanation: Dividend growth financial stocks may be valued upon historical relative price/book value and current yield analysis. Dividend financial stocks trading at a low historical price/book value (P/BV) ratio should be viewed more highly to investors due to their depressed valuation versus other higher P/BV ratio stocks.
