GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

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.

Third Avenue Management Comments on NVIDIA - Mar 06, 2013

Our primary attractions to NVIDIA (NVDA) are its leading market position in graphics processors (GPUs) and, more recently, the strides it has taken to address the growing mobile computing market (tablets and smart phones). Its tablet and smart phone offerings are based on ARM designs for low power applications, enabling us, as investors, to benefit from growth in the adoption of ARM designs, but at much more attractive pricing than buying ARM shares directly. The GPU market is being driven by an increasing demand for graphics due to increasing digital content design (e.g., videos, commercials, 3-D interactive content, product design) and are used heavily in work stations and supercomputers, where high-end computing is used for design and simulation.

Level Global Agrees to Pay $21.5 Million in Illegal Trading Penalties
‘Tis the season of high-dollar settlements — well, for the US Securities and Exchange Commission that is. This week the managers of a now extinct Greenwich hedge fund agreed to pay over $21.5 million to the SEC in order to settle illegal insider trading charges brought against Level Global’s co-founder and a former analyst for the firm. The charges brought against the firm’s co-founder, Anthony Chiasson, and former analyst, Spyridan “Sam” Adondakis, came in January 2012, and accuse the two men of engaging in multiple instances of illegal insider trading of shares of Dell (DELL) and Nvidia (NVDA).

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:NVD.Germany
NVIDIA Corporation was incorporated in California in April 1993. It is a visual computing company, connecting people through the powerful medium of computer graphics. The Company's businesses are based on two important technologies: the GPU and the Tegra processor. GPUs, each with billions of transistors, are the engine of visual computing and among the world's complex processors. It has GPU product brands designed for specific users and applications: GeForce for gamers; Quadro for designers; Tesla for researchers; and GRID VGX for cloud-based server graphics modules. The Tegra processor is a system-on-a-chip, or SOC, integrating an entire computer on a single chip. Tegra processors incorporate multi-core GPUs and CPUs together with audio, video and input/output capabilities. They can also be integrated with baseband processors for phone and data communication. It also sells its processors to OEMs that build PCs, workstations, servers, smartphones and tablets. The Company targets four market segments - Gaming, Enterprise, Mobile and Cloud - where its deep expertise in visual computing allows creating solutions and experiences for users. Consumers today can watch movies, read books or listen to music on many kinds of devices. Their content is either stored and enjoyed on their devices, or stored in the cloud and streamed to their devices, whether PC, Mac, phone, connected TV or tablet. Its enterprise strategy is to serve as its customers' trusted graphics partner, working closely with independent software vendors to optimize their offerings for NVIDIA GPUs, and delivering end-to-end visual computing solutions for targeted visual-computing-intensive applications. The foundation of its mobile computing strategy is the Tegra processor, which harnesses its expertise in computer chip, software and system design, while leveraging expertise in visual computing. The computer industry has gone through several major industry shifts - from client-servers, to PCs, to mobile devices connected to the Internet. The Company's sales and marketing strategy is key to its objective to become the supplier of high-performance and efficient GPUs and mobile system-on-chip products. It utilizes suppliers, such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, to produce its semiconductor wafers. The market for its products is intensely competitive and is characterized by rapid technological change, evolving industry standards and declining average selling prices.
