Some studies in the 1990s documented that book value of equity to market value of equity (BV/MV) and the market value of equity (MVE) capture the cross-sectional variation of stock returns in the U.S. market in the 1963-90 period. Other researchers argued, however, that two other variables-the sales-to-price ratio (SIP) and the debt-to-equity ratio (DIE)-have more explanatory power for stock returns than BV/MV and MVE. The evidence in this article,from London Stock Exchange data, indicates that SIP and DIE do not entirely absorb the roles of BV/MV and MVE in explaining the cross-section of average stock returns in the U.K. market. We did find that SIP has significant explanatory power beyond the contribution of BV/MV and MVE, but the explanatory power of DIE is captured by SIP.
