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.

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Electronic Components
Compare:HTHIY, MIELY, APH, TEL, GLW » details
Bel Fuse Inc was incorporated in 1967. The Company designs, manufactures and markets magnetic, modules, and circuit protection devices and interconnect products. These products are designed to protect, regulate, connect, isolate or manage electronic circuits. Its products are primarily used in the networking, telecommunications, computing, military, and aerospace and transportation industries. Its portfolio of products also finds application in the automotive, medical and consumer electronics markets. The Company produces MagJack integrated connector modules. These devices integrate RJ45 and/or USB connectors with discrete magnetic components to provide a more robust part that allows customers to substantially reduce board space and inventory requirements. Power transformer products include standard and custom designs produced by the Companys Signal Transformer subsidiary. Manufactured for use in alarm, security, motion control, elevator, medical products and many other industries, Signals designs are available in PC mount, chassis mount, surface mount and toroidal construction. Discrete magnetic components comprise its legacy product group, which includes transformers and chokes for use in networking, telecommunications and broadband applications. These magnetic devices condition, filter and isolate the signal as it travels through network equipment, helping to ensure accurate data/voice/video transmission. Its Power conversion products include standard and custom isolated and non-isolated DC-DC converters designed specifically to power low voltage silicon devices. The Company has expanded its line of modules designed to support data transmission over existing power lines including next generation HomePlug AV powerline applications. Its circuit protection products include board level fuses, and Polymeric PTC devices, designed for the electronic and telecommunication markets. Fuses and PTC devices prevent currents in an electrical circuit from exceeding certain predetermined levels, acting as a safety valve to protect expensive components from damage by cutting off high currents before they can generate enough heat to cause smoke or fire. It has a line of modular connectors including RJ45 and RJ11 passive jacks, plugs, and cable assemblies. Passive jacks serve mainly as the connectivity device in networking equipment such as routers, hubs, switches, and patch panels. Modular plugs and cable assemblies are utilized within the structured cabling system, often referred to as premise wiring. The Company sells its products to customers throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
