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.

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:PS7.Germany
Pericom Semiconductor Corporation was incorporated in California in June 1990. The Company designs, develops and markets high-performance integrated circuits ("ICs") and frequency control products ("FCPs") used for the transfer, routing, and timing of digital and analog signals within and between computer, networking, datacom and telecom systems. Its IC products include functions that support the connectivity, timing and signal conditioning of high-speed parallel and serial protocols that transfer data among a system's microprocessor, memory and various peripherals, such as displays and monitors, and between interconnected systems. The Company's FCPs are electronic components that provide frequency references such as crystals and oscillators for computer, communication and consumer electronic products. Its analog, digital and mixed-signal ICs, together with its FCP products enable higher system bandwidth and signal quality, resulting in better operating reliability, signal integrity, and lower overall system cost in applications such as notebook computers, servers, network switches and routers, storage area networks, digital TVs, cell phones, GPS and digital media players. The Company has three operating segments which aggregate into one reportable segment, the interconnectivity device supply market. The Company uses its expertise in high-performance digital, analog, mixed-signal silicon-based IC and quartz-based FCP designs, its reusable core cell library and its modular design methodology to achieve a rapid rate of new product introductions. Within each of the company's IC product families, the product portfolio has evolved from a standard building block into both standard products of increasing performance and application-specific standard products ("ASSP"), which are tailored to meet a specific high volume application. Within each product family, it continues to address the common trends of decreasing supply voltage, higher integration and faster speeds. Within the company's quartz based FCP product families, including crystal, crystal oscillator ("XO"), and voltage controlled crystal oscillator ("VCXO"), it has evolved its technologies to include specialized XO and hybrid capability. The IC semiconductor and FCP industry is intensely competitive. The Company's IC competitors include Analog Devices, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Fairchild Semiconductor International, Hitachi, Integrated Device Technology, Inc., Maxim Integrated Products, Inc., Motorola, On Semiconductor Corp., NXP, Parade Technologies, PLX Technology, Silicon Laboratories, Inc., STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Inc. and Toshiba. Its FCP competitors include Vectron International, Inc., Connor Winfield Ltd., Fox Electronics, Ecliptek Corporation, Mtron PTI, Epson Toyocom Corporation and among others.
