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).

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 Illumina Inc. - May 29, 2014

Shares of Illumina, Inc. (ILMN), the leading provider of next generation DNA sequencing instruments and consumables, rose 34% in the first quarter, driven by better than expected fourth quarter financial results, strong 2014 financial guidance, and the announcement of multiple new product introductions, including an ultra-high throughput sequencing platform that will be the first to sequence a full human genome for less than $1,000. We believe Illumina has further distanced itself from its competitors and holds an effective monopoly on DNA sequencing at a time when demand is accelerating.

Baron Funds Comments on Illumina Inc. - May 02, 2014

Shares of Illumina, Inc. (ILMN), the leading provider of next generation DNA sequencing instruments and consumables, rose during the quarter, driven by better-than-expected fourth quarter results, strong 2014 financial guidance, and the announcement of multiple new product introductions. The company's most exciting new product is an ultra-high throughput sequencing platform that will be the first to sequence a full human genome for less than $1,000. We believe these developments support our view that Illumina has meaningfully distanced itself from its competitors. We believe that nearly all new orders in the sequencing industry are being won by Illumina, affording the company a de facto monopoly in DNA sequencing devices. Further, Illumina retains this remarkable competitive position at a time when demand for next generation DNA sequencing is accelerating rapidly.

Baron Funds Comments on Illumina Inc. - Aug 08, 2013

Shares of Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) outperformed during the second quarter. Illumina is the leading provider of next generation DNA sequencing instruments and consumables. In April, the company reported strong first quarter results. Revenues increased 21%, ahead of Wall Street estimates, driven by strength across the entire product portfolio. Earnings also exceeded expectations. We think Illumina's strong first quarter results were driven in part by market share gains, which may have accelerated after the company's main competitor announced it was evaluating strategic alternatives. (Neal Kaufman)

Baron Funds Comments on Illumina Inc. - Aug 02, 2013

Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) is the leading manufacturer of instruments and consumables used by scientists engaged in researching applications for 'next generation' DNA sequencing. Illumina's products have been at the forefront of huge recent advances in technology that have brought the cost of sequencing a human genome from roughly $1 billion 23 years ago, when the Human Genome Project was launched, to $3,000 today (and still declining rapidly). The company reported quarterly revenue and earnings growth ahead of Wall Street estimates, driven by strength across its entire product portfolio.We believe these results were driven by both growing end markets and market share gains, which may have accelerated after the company's main competitor announced it was considering selling itself.

Baron Funds Comments on Illumina Inc. - May 01, 2013

Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) is a leading provider of genetic analysis tools, including DNA sequencing instruments and consumables. Its shares increased in December 2012 on press reports that Roche Holdings AG, a large Swiss pharmaceutical and diagnostic company, was in discussions to purchase Illumina. In early January, Illumina's shares fell after Roche's CEO was quoted in the press stating that the companies could not reach an agreement on price, and Roche was abandoning its efforts to acquire Illumina. Our investment in Illumina was not predicated on its being acquired, and we remain confident in the company's long-term prospects in the large, fast-growing market for DNA sequencing and genetic analysis.
