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.

ASML Holding NV is a provider of advanced technology systems for the semiconductor industry. It offers an integrated portfolio of lithography systems for manufacturing complex integrated circuits. It supplies lithography systems to IC manufacturers throughout Asia, the United States and Europe and also provides its customers with a full range of support services from advanced process and product applications knowledge to complete round-the-clock service support. The company's older PAS 2500 and PAS 5000 lithography systems, which it no longer manufactures but continue to refurbish, are used for g-line and i-line processing of wafers up to 150 mm in diameter and are employed in manufacturing environments and in special applications for which design resolutions no more precise than 0.5 microns are required. The company's PAS 5500 product family comprises advanced wafer steppers and Step & Scan systems suitable for i-line, Krypton Fluoride and Argon Fluoride processing of wafers up to 200 mm in diameter and is employed in volume manufacturing to achieve design nodes requiring resolutions down to 90 nm. The company introduced the PAS 5500 Step & Scan systems with improved resolution and overlay. It offers TWINSCAN systems, based on i-line, KrF and ArF processing of wafers up to 300 mm in diameter for manufacturing environments for which design resolutions down to 38 nanometer are required. The dual-stage advantage of TWINSCAN systems enables its customers to benefit from the process enhancements of immersion while continuing to use familiar and proven metrology technology. It markets and sells its products through its direct sales staff.
