Valuation


BUY. The current P/E ratio indicates a significant discount compared to an average of 28.97 for the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry and a discount compared to the S&P 500 average of 19.91. To use another comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.36 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.75 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 4.34. The price-to-sales ratio is similar to the S&P 500 average, but it is significantly below the industry average, indicating a discount. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, KULICKE & SOFFA INDUSTRIES proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
