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.

Guru Investment Theses on Cymer, Inc.

Baron Funds Comments on Cymer - Feb 06, 2013

Cymer, Inc. (CYMI), the leading provider of photolithography light sources for semiconductor manufacturing jumped dramatically (up 77.1% this quarter) after it was announced it was being acquired by its largest customer, ASML. This validated our multi-year growth thesis, centered on the uptake of next-generation extreme ultra-violet (EUV) lasers. (Randy Gwirtzman)

From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter.

Baron Funds Comments on Cymer Inc. - Dec 06, 2012

For example, Cymer, Inc.'s share price fell 13.4% in the quarter.We have been purchasing Cymer for more than a year. We estimated Cymer would earn only about $1 per share per year in 2012, which made its share price seem relatively expensive. However, we believed the company was spending more than $4 per share after taxes annually to develop a new laser light source that would enable Intel and ASML to produce significantly smaller silicon chips. The new chips would be more powerful, allow faster operations and use less energy.Within a few years after the introduction of its new lasers, we thought Cymer could earn $15-20 per share.We expected that earnings stream to grow significantly for a decade. This is because Cymer has an unusually large portion of its revenues provided by fees from its customers for the use of Cymer lasers that they had purchased! ASML, Cymer's most important customer, agreed to purchase Cymer in October. While we will make more than a 50% return on our investment, we had hoped for a lot more than that in coming years.We had added to our Cymer investment in the quarter when its share price fell. Cymer's intellectual property provides this company with an important competitive advantage over businesses that would like to copy its invention and business model.

From Baron Funds’ third quarter commentary.
