Hidden Values

Assets that may be undervalued on a company's balance sheet and therefore not incorporated into or reflected in the company's share price.

Hidden values can be in the form of assets such as patents, trademarks, or undervalued real estate. Investors who are value-oriented will often try to identify a company's hidden values.

In the U.K., hidden values are called "hidden reserves."
