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•

Mentor Graphics Corporation is in the industry of electronic design automation or EDA. The Company's products are used in the design and development of a set of electronic products, including automotive electronics, computers and workstations, digital cameras, cellular telephones, medical devices, smart phones, industrial electronics, and manufacturing systems. The Company's Functional Verification tools allow engineers to verify that their IC designs function as intended. Functional errors are a cause of design revisions that slow down an electronic system's time-to-market and reduce its profitability. It offers the digital simulation products: The Company's Questa software tool is a hardware description language & is used for application-specific integrated circuits, SoCs, FPGAs, and other IC design verification. The company provides hardware emulation systems, such as its Veloce product, which allow users to create functional and logical equivalent models of actual electronic circuits to verify the function and timing of those circuits. Hardware emulation systems typically allow faster verification of complex electronic circuits when compared to software simulation tools. The company also offers the Olympus-SoC place and route product targeted at customers creating ICs using geometries of 65 nm and below. Its PCB-FPGA Systems Design software products support the PCB design process from schematic entry, where the electronic circuit is defined by engineers, through physical layout of the PCB, to providing digital output data for manufacturing, assembly, and test. The Company's AutoActive place and route technology is available on both UNIX and Windows platforms and is used to replace older generation routers in its PCB design. The main competitors of the company are Cadence Design Systems, Inc. and Synopsys, Inc.
