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.

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:SX5.Germany
Supertex, Inc., was incorporated in California in October, 1975. It completed its initial public offering on December, 1983. The Company is a producer of high voltage analog and mixed signal semiconductor components. It designs, develops, manufactures, and markets integrated circuits (ICs), utilizing state-of-the-art high voltage DMOS, HVCMOS and HVBiCMOS analog and mixed signal technologies. With respect to its DMOS transistor products, it maintains an established application specific position in providing key products for the industrial, telecommunication, instrumentation, medical and automatic test equipment (ATE) industries. It also provides high voltage ICs (HVCMOS and HVBiCMOS), CMOS, bipolar and DMOS technologies and integrating them into the same chip. These ICs are used in the medical ultrasound imaging, LCD TV backlighting, LED general lighting, telecommunications, printer, flat panel display, industrial and consumer product industries. Its target markets are medical electronics, LED lighting, imaging, and telecom. Its products are used in or with medical ultrasound instruments, large commercial ink jet printers, light emitting diodes (LEDs) for backlighting TVs and general lighting, electro-luminescent (EL) lamps for applications in cell phone keypads and hand-held devices, and optical MEMS for telecommunication products. Government regulations impose various environmental controls on the waste treatment and discharge of certain chemicals and gases after their use in semiconductor processing.
