By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Semiconductor Equipment industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Tessera Technologies ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 6.3%. Following is Lam Research with a forward earnings yield of 6.2%. Nova Measuring Instruments ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 5.8%.

Photronics follows with a forward earnings yield of 5.6%, and Teradyne rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 5.2%.
