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.

Traded in other countries:TCS.Germany,
Taser International Inc is incorporated in Delaware in September 1993. The Company is engaged in the development, manufacture and sale of conducted electrical weapons designed for use in law enforcement, military, corrections, private security and personal defense. Since its inception it has been providing solutions to violent confrontation by developing devices with proprietary technology to incapacitate dangerous, combative, or high-risk subjects. The Company's operations are comprised of two reportable segments; the sale of CEWs, accessories and other products and services (the "TASER Weapons" segment); and the video business, which includes the TASER Cam, AXON Video products and EVIDENCE.com (the "EVIDENCE.com & Video" segment). The Company's consumer product for the personal defense market is the TASER C2 CEW that provides the same proven NMI effectiveness as its law enforcement CEWs but in a less intimidating, more compact form at a price point more attractive to private citizens. While the C2 CEW is its primary product for the consumer market, it has developed consumer versions of the X2, M26 and X26 CEWs. In 2013, it introduced the TASER StrikeLight, a handheld stun device, integrated with a high intensity flashlight, at a low price point. The Company is subject to environmental laws and regulations, including restrictions on the presence of certain substances in electronic products.
