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.

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.
