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.

Guru Investment Theses on Cray Inc

Bill Frels Comments on Cray Inc - Jun 25, 2014

Supercomputer manufacturer Cray, Inc. (CRAY) proved to be the strongest contributor to portfolio performance, gaining 35.91% for the period due in large part to the strength of its management. We believe much of the credit for the firm’s success should go to Chief Executive Officer Peter Ungoro and the team he has built since leaving IBM. He has positioned the company within its traditional supercomputer business with an internally-developed adaptive computing technology that gives Cray computers the flexibility to offer CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) from several chip manufacturers rather than being tied to just one. As a result, Cray can use the best technology available as well as allow customers to later upgrade or reconfigure their systems if they choose. In addition, while traditionally focused on Government contracts, Mr. Ungoro has positioned the firm to grow within the emerging field of Big Data and expand its base of commercial customers. Commercial revenue accounted for just 20% of total revenue in 2012. The company’s new offerings in Big Data should create significant room to grow that segment of its business over the next several years.

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Computer Systems
Compare:AAPL, HPQ, DELL, LNVGY, NIPNF » details
Traded in other countries:TE4A.Germany
Cray, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Washington in December 1987 under the name Tera Computer Company. The company changed its corporate name to Cray Inc. in connection with its acquisition of the Cray Research, Inc. or Cray Research, operating assets from Silicon Graphics, Inc. in 2000. It designs, develops, manufactures, markets and services high performance computing systems, commonly known as supercomputers. It sells its products mainly through a seasoned supercomputing direct sales force that operates throughout the United States and in Canada, Europe, Japan and Asia-Pacific. Its supercomputer systems provide capability, capacity and sustained performance beyond typical server-based computer systems and address scientific, engineering and national security computing problems. It concentrates on building balanced systems that are purpose-built for supercomputer users. These systems address the critical computing resource challenges HPC users face today: achieving massive scaling to tens of thousands of processors, ease of use, and very high levels of sustained performance on real applications. The company's supercomputers utilize components and technologies designed to support the demanding requirements of high-end HPC users. The Cray XT5 system is its current main massively parallel processing system. It has doubled the density and memory bandwidth of previous systems in the same footprint, supporting very high density processor configurations. The Cray XT5h system is an integrated hybrid supercomputer that allows a single system to provide a variety of processing technologies for diverse workflows. The Cray CX1 system is designed for offices, laboratories and university departments requiring systems mainly in the workgroup server market segment. The company's Cray XT5m midrange supercomputer is designed to make its HPC technology available to more users by targeting the lower end of the supercomputer market segment and the high end of the divisional server market segment.
