book value per share and cash per share > share price. Profitable. Probably worth more than the share price. A reasonably safe pick.
Zero debt and expanding product line. Undervalued.
Solid market leader in tantalum. Pays a nice dividend off of solid cash flow. Acquiring companies to strengthen competitive advantage.
Great value proposition.
Strong financials. Dividend payor. Serving growing markets. Well managed. Double-digit ROE. Tough year for the stock renders it cheap for long-term investors.
Cheap. No debt. They have a variety of products. What's not to like?

They seem to be having a great year, which makes the valuations look good right now. However, based on the past several years, there just isn't the margin of safety for me to drop real money into it just yet. There's also a hanging threat of some environmental cleanup costs that could wipe out the last 3 years worth of earnings.That said, this company has a solid balance sheet (enough cash to pay for those cleanup costs and no debt). They generate cash year after year. I think the stock will perform better than average, and if it drops back below 14 anytime soon on no news, I'd be willing to put real money behind it.
Consistant revenue and earnings growth quarter over quarter since bottoming in March 2009. Rapidly growing market for their passive electronic components worldwide. Undervalued.
Earnings for quarter up 111% over last year. Sales up 39% over last year. Beat estimates by 18%. Worth $25.50. Trading at a 80% discount.
Brought to my attention by Charles B. Carlson's "DRIP Investor" newsletter, this company manufactures and supplies electronic components used in devices to store, filter and regulate electrical energy. Looking at their financial numbers, the Forward & Trailing P/Es are 11.54 and 15.8, respectively (good numbers by me). The PEG ratio is a very nice 1.02 currently, while their EV/EBITDA value is well under 10 at 6.98. The profit & operating margins are 11% & 13%, resp., the RoA=5.4%, and RoE=8.23%. The last Quarterly Revenue growth hit 35.2%, and they are sitting on a wad of cash (almost $700M, one-third of their market cap). For volatility freaks, this one rides below the radar with a Beta value of 0.81, and over 70% of the company is owned by insiders (according to Yahoo! Finance). Even better, the company has ZERO debt. I like these numbers very much. And to put some icing on this cake, the SlowStochastics show this stock to be very much oversold and ready for a bounce-back (there! I've just damned myself to a falling pick now!). This is not going to be a barn-burner of a stock, but I'm hoping to beat the S&P500 with this one.[Source: Yahoo! Finance]
It may not be a double-bagger, but this is a stock that is a great value. Excellent fundamentals and a 1.6% yield make this is a safe investment with good potential for returns.
small cap value play
No debt. Has taken a big hit over the last 3 mos. The company's financials look ok/good. At it's current price ($8.77), it may have been dragged down too far in the current turmoil. This would be a longish term value play. With the dividend adding to the return, it will make a nice addition to my retirement account.
MACD Bullish Crossing at Centerline with increased volume.
Stock found using custom screen. Highlights include no debt, heavy insider ownership, and a newly declared dividend. Stock is down on an earnings miss due to rising energy costs and a weak dollar. The stock was also downgraded since these disadvantages are unlikely to disappear in the next year. However, I see strength in the electronic components sector, and think this stock will recover nicely from these temporary disadvantages.
