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.

Guru Investment Theses on SunEdison Inc

Baron Funds Comments on SunEdison Inc. - Aug 24, 2015

SunEdison, Inc. (NYSE:SUNE) is one of the largest alternative energy developers (solar, wind, and hydro) in the world. TerraForm Global (as well as TerraForm Power which is owned in the Baron Global Advantage Fund) is a “yieldco” created and majority owned by SunEdison for the purpose of owning the operating assets and producing and distributing cash flows to shareholders. The “yieldcos” serve to lower the cost of capital, which, in turn, increases the value of the specific project assets. TerraForm Global’s projects will be located in emerging markets, including Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Expected to go public sometime in July, this “yieldco” should provide a new stream of cash flow to Sun Edison in the form of dividends and incentive distributions for many years to come. We believe both companies represent unique and compelling growth opportunities in a segment that, in our view, is poised for significant growth.

Baron Funds Comments on SunEdison Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Shares of renewable energy company SunEdison, Inc. rose during the second quarter on the announcement of several acquisitions in emerging markets and an IPO filing for TerraForm Global, SunEdison’s emerging market “yieldco.” SunEdison also announced that it is considering a general partnership structure to better recognize the value of the incentive distribution rights it will receive for its yieldcos. These announcements were viewed positively as investors gained confidence that the company will successfully execute on its strategy. (Jamie Stone)

Traded in other countries:WFR.Germany, SUNE.Mexico, SDSNP.USA,
SunEdison Inc, formerly Memc Electronic Material was formed in 1984 as a Delaware corporation and completed its initial public stock offering in 1995. The Company is engaged in the manufacture and sale of wafers and related products to the semiconductor and solar industries. The Company is engaged in two reportable industry segments: Semiconductor Materials; and Solar Energy. In Semiconductor Materials Segment the company offer wafers with a wide variety of features satisfying numerous product specifications to meet its customers' exacting requirements. Its wafers vary in size, surface features, composition, purity levels, crystal properties and electrical properties. Its monocrystalline wafers for use in semiconductor applications range in size from 100 millimeter to 300 millimeter and are round in shape for semiconductor customers because of the nature of their processing equipment. Its prime wafer is a polished, highly refined, pure wafer with an ultraflat and ultraclean surface. Its OPTIA wafer is a 100% defect-free crystalline structure based on its patented technologies and processes, including Magic Denuded Zone, or MDZ. Its epitaxial, or epi, wafers consist of a thin silicon layer grown on the polished surface of the wafer. In support of that downstream solar business, its Solar Energy business unit manufactures polysilicon, silicon wafers and solar modules.
