The result is a list of attractive value stocks for additional research. Here are the top 10 in each of the three metrics listed above:

There are some interesting plays on the list. Ticketmaster (TKTM) has agreed to be acquired by Live Nation for about its current value, so it can probably be discarded. A number of construction stocks on the lists, including Perini (PCR) and EMCOR (NYSE:EME), may benefit from government stimulus spending in the relatively near term. In addition to the freely available reports, MagicDiligence Members have access to research on USA Mobility Inc. (NASDAQ:USMO), Knoll Inc. (NYSE:KNL), Meredith Corp. (NYSE:MDP), Pacer International Inc. (NASDAQ:PACR), Inc. (TSCM), and Hurco Companies Inc. (NASDAQ:HURC).
