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.

Teradyne Inc is Massachusetts Corporation incorporated on September 23, 1960. The Company designs, develops, manufactures and sells automatic test systems and solutions used to test complex electronics in the consumer electronics, automotive, computing, telecommunications, wireless, and aerospace and defense industries. It is a supplier of automatic test equipment. Its automatic test equipment products and services include: semiconductor test systems; military/aerospace test instrumentation and systems, storage test systems, and circuit-board test and inspection systems; and wireless test systems. The Company has a range of customer base which includes integrated device manufacturers, outsourced semiconductor assembly and test providers, wafer foundries, fabless companies that design, but contract with others for the manufacture of integrated circuits, developers of wireless devices and consumer electronics, manufacturers of circuit boards, automotive companies, wireless product manufacturers, storage device manufacturers, aerospace and military contractors as well as the United States Department of Defense. The Company designs, manufactures, sells and supports Semiconductor Test products and services on a worldwide basis. The test systems it provides are used both for wafer level and device package testing. These chips are used in automotive, communications, consumer, computer and electronic game applications, among others. Semiconductor Test products and services are sold to IDMs that integrate the fabrication of silicon wafers into their business, "Fabless" companies that outsource the manufacturing of silicon wafers, "Foundries" that cater to the processing and manufacturing of silicon wafers, and OSATs that provide test and assembly services for the final packaged devices to both Fabless companies and IDMs. Systems Test Group segment is comprised of three business units: Mil/Aero, Storage Test and Commercial Board Test. In the Wireless Test segment, LitePoint designs, develops, and supports advanced wireless test solutions for the development and manufacturing of wireless devices, including smart phones, tablets, notebooks/laptops, personal computer peripherals, and other Wi-Fi enabled devices. LitePoint's products fall into two categories: cellular and connectivity. The Company has sales and service offices located throughout North America, Asia and Europe.
