Watered Capitalization Meaning And Definition

Watered Capitalization:

If the stock or capital of the company is not mentioned by assets of equivalent value, it is called as watered stock. In simple words, watered capital means that the realizable value of assets of the company is less than its book value.

According to Hoagland’s definition, “A stock is said to be watered when its true value is less than its book value.”
