Other tech-related names that are "double nets" include telecommunications networking product name Tellabs ( TLAB) , which is currently trading at 1.2 times net current asset value. Not currently profitable on a trailing 12-month basis, the company has $1.12 billion, or $3.05 per share, in cash and marketable securities, and $181 million in debt. Unprofitable technology companies are typically not my cup of tea, but given the large amount of cash and securities relative to the current price ($3.34), I'll be watching this one.

Other technology-related double nets include Kulicke and Soffa Industries ( KLIC), Scan Source ( SCSC), Power-One ( PWER) Inc (PWER), Park Electrochemical ( PKE) and Tessera Technologies ( TSRA). While double net land is currently dominated by tech names, there are some non-tech names, including aluminum wheel manufacturer Superior Industries ( SUP), workforce solutions provider Kelly Services ( KELYA), footwear retailer Shoe Carnival ( SCVL) and golf company Callaway ( ELY), to name a handful. Callaway is a name I recently gave up on after having owned it for the past few years. The company's "recovery" has been pushed further and further into the future, and I finally gave up and moved on. Sometimes stocks appear cheap for legitimate reasons.
