Pros: EV/EBITDA of 3.71, PEG of 0.94, $7.75 net cash per share (22% of mkt cap), 4% dividend.

Cons: 7.5% of shares are sold short. No insider buying, only insider selling. If semis are going through an extended cyclical downturn, this is only good for an LT entry.

As a reminder, my thesis is to pick good companies at good pricies that pay dividends. Companies that I would be pleased to own if the market shut down for a year.

KLAC certainly meets that criteria. They pay a nice 2.3% dividend that has been steadily raised over time. They have a great balance sheet with $1.8b in cash, or almost $11 per share. They have been solidly beating expectations, yet have a ev/ebit of a bit over 6x.

The semiconductor industry is about to come out of the slump triggered by over capacity in Flash Memory (thank you iPod buyers !)

KLAC will ride that wave.
