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.

Headquarter Location:Israel
Metalink Ltd is a fabless semiconductor Company. It is engaged in marketing and selling of DSL chipsets used by manufacturers of telecommunications equipment. Its broadband silicon solutions enables speed streaming video, voice & data transmission.

Metalink, Ltd. was incorporated in September 1992 as a corporation under the laws of the State of Israel. The Company markets digital subscriber line chipsets used by manufacturers of telecommunication equipment. Its chipsets enable the digital transmission of voice, video and data over copper wire communications lines at speeds that are up to 2,000 times faster than transmission rates provided by conventional analog modems. The Company's chipsets include two individual integrated circuits, or chips, and include an analog front-end for line interfacing with analog signals and a digital signal processor / framer for signal and data processing of the messages being transmitted. In addition, it is engaged in the research and development of high-throughput wireless local area network chipsets. It offers a suite of DSL chip set solutions. A typical chip set consists of an analog front-end device and a digital device. The AFE serves as an interface between the analog signals transmitted along the copper wire and the digital device. The AFE performs various analog signal-processing functions, such as converting the analog signals into digital format and vice-versa. The digital device includes multiple functions including the transceiver section implementing the modulation and demodulation of the digital signal, the framer section which serves as an interface between the DSP functional block and the digital network system. It has established a worldwide network of independent sales representatives and distributors.
