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.

KLA-Tencor Corp is a supplier of process control and yield management solutions for the semiconductor and related nanoelectronics industries.

KLA-Tencor Corp was formed in April 1997. It is a supplier of process control and yield management solutions for the semiconductor and related nanoelectronics industries. Its products are also used in other high technology industries, including the light emitting diode and data storage industries, as well as general materials research. Its portfolio of defect inspection and metrology products, and related service, software and other offerings, helps integrated circuit manufacturers manage yield throughout the entire semiconductor fabrication process-from research and development to final volume production. Its products and services are used by the bare wafer, IC, lithography reticle and disk manufacturers. The Company's defect inspection and metrology products and related offerings can be broadly categorized into the following groups: Chip Manufacturing, Wafer Manufacturing, Reticle Manufacturing, LED and Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing, Data Storage Media/Head Manufacturing, Microelectromechanical Systems Manufacturing, and General Purpose/Lab Applications. The Company's in-house manufacturing activities consist mainly of assembling and testing components and subassemblies that are acquired through third-party vendors and integrating those subassemblies into its finished products. Its principal manufacturing activities take place in the United States (Milpitas, California), Singapore, Israel, Germany and China. Its competitors include Applied Materials, Inc., ASML Holding N.V., Hermes Microvision, Inc., Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation and Nanometrics, Inc.

Guru Investment Theses on KLA-Tencor Corp

Jerome Dodson Comments on KLA-Tencor - Nov 01, 2016

During the third quarter, we added two new stocks and sold two others to make room for our new positions. The first addition was KLA-Tencor (NASDAQ:KLAC), the semiconductor-equipment manufacturer. KLA’s technological expertise in process-control equipment generates industry-leading margins, and the company’s moat is widening as chips get smaller and defects become harder to find. The stock has underperformed its peers, as semiconductor equipment spending has been concentrated on memory chips, instead of logic chips, which is KLA’s core market. In addition, uncertainty around KLA’s pending acquisition by Lam Research held the stock back. After the quarter ended, KLA and Lam called off the deal, which will shift investor focus to the improving demand for KLA’s equipment, and should move the stock higher.
