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.

Compare:ASML, AMAT, TOELY, KLAC, LRCX » details
Traded in other countries:NMR.Germany
Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. was incorporated in May 1993 under the laws of the State of Israel. The Company commenced operations in October 1993 to design, develop and produce integrated process control systems for use in the manufacture of semiconductors, also known as integrated circuits or chips. The Company is a designer, developer and producer of integrated process control metrology systems and design, manufacture and sell stand-alone metrology used in the manufacturing process of semiconductors. The Company's products include metrology systems for thin film measurement in chemical mechanical polishing and chemical vapor deposition applications; optical CD and Metal Line Thickness (MLT) systems for use in post-copper chemical mechanical polishing applications; and optical critical dimension systems for lithography and etch applications. Its integrated thickness monitoring system for chemical mechanical polishing process control enables wafer-to-wafer closed loop control. It offers several models of this integrated thickness monitoring systems, depending on polisher type and end-user requirements. These metrology systems address a range of metrology requirements of its end-user and process equipment manufacturer customers. Both its integrated and stand-alone systems incorporate patented optical scanning, dynamic auto-focus, unique pattern recognition for arbitrarily oriented wafers and proprietary algorithms for in-water measuring of two layers simultaneously. It offers several different product models that are tailored to conventional chemical mechanical polishing equipment as well as to newer, high throughput polishers. Its current integrated products mainly compete with products manufactured by Nanometrics.
