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: Semiconductors » Semiconductor Equipment & Materials
Compare:ASML, AMAT, TOELY, KLAC, LRCX » details
Traded in other countries:WFR.Germany
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. In connection with its announcement on December 2011 restructuring, effective January 1, 2012, the company consolidated its solar business units' operations into one business unit, and since that date have been 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. Its Solar Energy business unit, effective January 1, 2012, provides solar energy services that integrates the design, installation, financing, monitoring, operations and maintenance portions of the downstream solar market to provide a comprehensive solar energy service to its customers. In support of that downstream solar business, its Solar Energy business unit manufactures polysilicon, silicon wafers and solar modules.
