GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Baron Funds Comments on ASML Holding - Nov 25, 2013

ASML Holding (NASDAQ:ASML) is the largest designer and manufacturer of semiconductor capital equipment in the world. We believe the company is unique due to its de-facto monopoly status in high-end lithography and that its proprietary Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) technology is a game changer that will position ASML for significant multi-year growth.

From Ron Baron's Baron Funds third quarter 2013 commentary.

ASML Holding NV, formerly ASM Lithography Holding N.V. was incorporated in the Netherlands on October 3, 1994 to serve as the holding company for its operations, which include operating subsidiaries in the Netherlands, the United States, Italy, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China (including Hong Kong), Japan, Malaysia and Israel. In 2001, the Company changed its name to ASML Holding NV. The Company is a provider of lithography systems for the semiconductor industry, manufacturing complex machines that are critical to the production of integrated circuits or chips. The TWINSCAN NXE is the production platform for extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL). The NXE:3300B is the successor to the NXE:3100, offering 22 nm resolution with conventional illumination and 18 nm with off-axis illumination. The TWINSCAN NXT:1960Bi Step-and-Scan system is a dual-stage immersion lithography system designed for volume production 300-mm wafers at the 2x-nm node and beyond. The TWINSCAN XT:1950Hi Step-and-Scan system takes single-exposure water-based immersion lithography to its limits. This dual-stage immersion lithography tool is designed for volume production on 300-mm wafers at 38-nm resolution and beyond. The PAS 5500/1150C 193-nm Step-and-Scan system enables 90-nm ArF mass production. The PAS 5500/1150C is the solution for 90-nm critical and non critical ArF layers. The PAS 5500/1150C can be configured with a number of options that enable low-k1 in manufacturing, extending application of the PAS 5500/1150C below 90 nm. The Company's business is subject to direct and indirect regulations in each of the countries.
