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.

Traded in other countries:RUD.Germany
Rudolph Technologies, Inc. is engaged in the design, development, and manufacture of high-performance process control metrology, defect inspection, and data analysis systems used by semiconductor device manufacturers. The Company provides yield management solutions used in both wafer processing and final manufacturing through a family of standalone systems and integrated modules for both transparent and opaque thin film measurements and macro-defect inspection. All of these systems feature sophisticated software and production-worthy automation. Rudolph systems are backed by worldwide customer service and applications support. The industry's first production-oriented microprocessor-controlled ellipsometer for thin transparent film measurements was introduced by Rudolph in 1977. Since that time, the Company has provided product developments designed to meet manufacturers' most advanced measurement requirements. The Company's systems also employ a proprietary reflectometer technology that allows the characterization of films and film stacks that cannot be performed using conventional reflectometry or ellipsometry alone. Rudolph has a comprehensive offering of software solutions for process management and data review. Using wafer maps, charts and graphs, the vast amount of data gathered through automated inspection could be analyzed to determine trends that ultimately affect yield. The Company markets and sells products to all major logic, memory, data storage and application-specific integrated circuit device manufacturers. Rudolph's customers rely on Rudolph for full-fab metrology and inspection systems as well as yield management software solutions. These systems are designed for high-volume production facilities and offer automated wafer handling for 200 and 300 mm configurations. The Company's systems operate at high throughput with ultraclean operation and high reliability. Over 90 semiconductor device manufacturers have purchased Rudolph tools and software for installation at multiple sites. Rudolph support a diverse customer base in terms of both geographic location and type of semiconductor device manufactured. The Company's customers are located in 20 countries. Rudolph maintains network of direct sales, customer service and application support offices in several locations throughout the world. The Company's main manufacturing activities include assembly, final test and calibration. These activities are conducted in its manufacturing facilities in New Jersey, Minnesota, and Washington. The company's core manufacturing competencies include electrical, optical and mechanical assembly and testing as well as the management of new product transitions.
