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.

Financial Strength

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: »
Compare:0 » details
Axesstel Inc was originally formed in July 2000 as a California Corporation and through a reverse merger in August 2002 became Axesstel, Inc., a Nevada Corporation. The Company provides fixed wireless voice and broadband data access products for worldwide telecommunications. Its product portfolio includes fixed wireless phones, wire-line replacement terminals, and 3G and 4G broadband gateway devices used to access voice calling and high-speed data services. The Companys fixed wireless phones and 3G and 4G gateway products have similar functionality to phones and modems that use traditional landline telecommunications networks; however, its products are wireless and could be substituted for wired phones and modems. Its wire-line replacement terminals act as communication devices in homes where conventional handsets and wireless handsets could be plugged into its wireless terminal and serviced on a wireless network, as opposed to connecting to the fixed line provided by the local telephone or cable operator. Its products are based on CDMA, GSM, GPRS, WCDMA, and HSPA technologies. The Company develops and manufactures its products with third party engineering and manufacturing suppliers, particularly in China. The Company sells its products to telecommunications operators worldwide. It sells its products into developing countries where large segments of the population do not have telephone or internet service. In those markets, telecommunications operators deploy wireless networks as a more cost effective alternative to traditional wired communications. The Company also sells into developed countries where telecommunications operators are using wireless networks to augment or supplant existing wire-line infrastructure. Currently, its largest customers are located in the United States, Poland, Scandinavia and Saudi Arabia. The Companys products are incorporated into commercial wireless communications systems that are subject to regulation domestically by the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, and internationally by other government agencies.
