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 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.
