7 Value Stocks to Buy Instead of Facebook

Patterson UTI

Patterson UTI (PTEN - Get Report) is a land-based specialty drilling services company operating in the southwest, Gulf of Mexico and Canada. The company's stock sells at significantly lower price-earnings multiple compared with larger drilling peers such as Baker Hughes (BHI), with a P/E of 11; Helmerich & Payne (HP), with a P/E of 10; and Nabors (NBR), with a P/E of 14. Patterson also operates at a higher gross margin than those same competitors, with the exception of Helmerich & Payne.

When drilling picks up, and it will, Patterson-UTI is a compelling value investment.

Kulicke & Soffa

Kulicke & Soffa (KLIC) is a Singapore-based semiconductor capital equipment and tool company.

Earnings and revenue are expected to stabilize in fiscal 2013.

Not only does Kulicke & Soffa have exceptionally low valuation ratios, but this $800 million market capitalization company has nearly $320 million in cash and equivalents net of long-term debt, all of which is currently payable. Thus, 40% of the stock price is in net cash.
