TOBIN'S Q: A financial measure of a firm's returns, calculated by dividing the market value of the firm (that is, the market value of its outstanding stock and debt) by the replacement costs of the firm's assets.

That is, Tobin suggested that the ratio of the market value of a firm to the replacement costs of its assets should be close to 1.
