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: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:A, ROP, GRMN, HXGBY, TRMB » details
Sono-Tek Corporation was incorporated in New York on March 21, 1975 for the purpose of engaging in the development, manufacture and sale of ultrasonic liquid atomizing nozzles. Ultrasonic nozzle systems atomize low to medium viscosity liquids by converting electrical energy into mechanical motion in the form of high frequency ultrasonic vibrations that break liquids into minute drops that can be applied to surfaces at low velocity. The principal advantage of these nozzle systems is that they use much less liquid than competitive nozzle systems to attain the required coatings on solar cells, fuel cells, glass, textiles, food and food packaging, circuit boards, medical devices and many other coating applications. This advantage translates into lower costs for materials, less water consumption, less energy required for subsequent drying operations and less release into the environment of spray that would normally bounce back with competitive nozzle systems. These factors are increasingly important to customers at a time of rising commodity and energy costs and supply limitations. It uses its core technology - ultrasonic spray coating - to provide customized coating solutions to industrial manufacturing companies, enabling them to reduce their product costs and to develop new products with superior features and quality. At the present time, its customers are in six major industries: electronics, advanced energy (solar and fuel cells), medical device, glass, textiles and foods. In addition, its systems are being used under confidentiality agreements by high tech companies and research institutions, as well as by defense, energy and health agencies of governments from around the world. The Company competes against global and regional manufacturers of nozzles and other products based on price, quality, product features and follow up service.
