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.

Compare:HTHIY, MIELY, APH, TEL, GLW » details
Traded in other countries:MXW.Germany
Maxwell Technologies, Inc. was incorporated under the name Maxwell Laboratories, Inc. in 1965. The Company made an initial public offering of common stock in 1983, and changed its name to Maxwell Technologies, Inc. in 1996. The company develops, manufactures and markets highly reliable, cost-effective energy storage and power delivery components and systems. The company's products are designed and manufactured to provide failure-free, very low maintenance, performance over the life of the applications into which they are integrated. The company focuses on three discrete lines of products- Ultracapacitors: Maxwell's primary focus, ultracapacitors, are energy storage devices that possess a unique combination of high power density, extremely long operational life and the ability to charge and discharge very rapidly. Its BOOSTCAP ultracapacitor cells and multi-cell packs and modules provide highly reliable energy storage and power delivery solutions for applications in multiple industries, including transportation, energy, consumer and industrial electronics and telecommunications. High-Voltage Capacitors: The company's CONDIS high-voltage capacitors are robust devices that are designed and manufactured to perform in all climates. These products include grading and coupling capacitors and capacitive voltage dividers that are used to ensure the safety and reliability of electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transport, distribution and measurement of high-voltage electrical energy. Radiation-Hardened Microelectronic Products: radiation-hardened microelectronic products for satellites and spacecraft include single board computers and components, such as high-density memory and power modules. Many of these products incorporate its proprietary RADPAK packaging and shielding technology and novel architectures that enable them to withstand the effects of environmental radiation and perform reliably in space. Manufacturing operations are concentrated in California and Switzerland. The company generally purchases components and materials, such as carbon powder, electronic components, dielectric materials and metal enclosures from a number of suppliers. The company markets and sells its products through both direct and indirect sales organizations in North America, Europe and Asia for integration by its OEM customers into a range of end products.
