Glossary Term: HARD ASSET

Definition(s) for HARD ASSET:


1. ) Also known as a tangible asset, it refers to one in which the value depends on particular physical properties. These include reproducible assets such as buildings or machinery and nonreproducible assets such as land, a mine, or a work of art. This is opposite to assets that have no physical presence, such as goodwill or a copyright, are called intangible assets. An industrial company with a lot of hard assets (factories, machinery, etc.) is best valued by its price-to-book ratio. But companies that have a lot of intangible intellectual assets (such as software makers or pharmaceutical companies) should be valued by other means.
