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.

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductor Equipment & Materials
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:39Y.Germany,
Rubicon Technology, Inc. was incorporated on February 7, 2001. The Company is a manufacturer of high-quality sapphire substrates and optical windows that are used in monocrystalline sapphire for applications in light-emitting diodes (LEDs), optical systems and specialty electronic devices. For the LED market, it sell two to four-inch material mainly in core form and six and eight-inch material primarily in polished wafer form. The Company fabricates its products from the boules and sells them in four general categories: core, as-cut, as-ground and polished. It currently offer two, three, four, six and eight-inch diameter wafers, in C, R, A, and M planar orientations. A sapphire crystal has multiple orientation planes resulting from its crystalline structure symmetry. Its core product line consists of its sapphire cores drilled from sapphire boules with high-precision. Its as-cut product line consists of sapphire cores sliced using a wire saw machine. Its as-ground product line consists of cut sapphire wafers that undergo a double-sided lapping and edge grinding process. Its polished product line primarily consists of finely polished, ultra-clean, six and eight-inch sapphire wafers. Its polished wafers undergo two polishing phases including both a mechanical and a chemical mechanical planarization phase. Its patterned sapphire substrates (PSS) product line consists of finely polished, ultra-clean, four and six-inch patterned sapphire wafers. The Company also offers optically-polished windows and ground window blanks of sapphire. It provides sapphire and other crystal products in many sizes, shapes and product formats for specialty applications. The Company market and sell its products through its direct sales force to customers in Asia, Australia, North America and Europe. Its customers are semiconductor device manufacturers and wafer polishing companies. It is subject to a variety of foreign, federal, state and local laws and regulations governing the protection of the environment.
