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.

A Stake in the Internet of Things Tsunami – Three Gurus Buy Skyworks
With key customers like Sony, Motorola, Cisco, Google, HP, Apple and many others, Skyworks Solutions’ semiconductors are in just about everything related to the Internet of Things Tsunami, a phrase that was coined by the Skyworks president and CEO David Aldrich and caught on like wild fire across the technology industry. As of the third quarter of 2013, three billionaire investors, Chuck Royce, Steven Cohen and Scott Black, made new buys of SWKS. Royce sold out in 2009 and the SWKS price has more than doubled since that time. Read more...
Second Quarter: Semiconductors and the ‘Internet of Things Tsunami’
Following a flat sector performance, semiconductors may have passed through the bottom of a cycle and are now expected to see a modest recovery. With the sun setting on the PC era, the age of infotaining cars and a multitude of new smartthings becomes a reality, semiconductors are needed more than ever. David Aldrich, president and chief executive officer of Skyworks Solutions, said it well, calling this unique situation “the Internet of Things tsunami.” Read more...
