Trading at a ten-year low on a P/B, P/E, and P/CF basis. The earnings yield is over twice the S & P 500's. 1.44B of net cash. The dividend is small, but has significant room for improvement as the payout ratio is only 14%. Wall St. is basically expecting an earnings dropoff in 2010, and a paltry 9% over the next 5 years.
