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 a Massachusetts Corporation incorporated on September 23, 1960. The Company is a supplier of automatic test equipment. It designs, develops, manufactures and sells automatic test systems and solutions which are used to test semiconductors, wireless products, hard disk drives and circuit boards in the consumer electronics, automotive, computing, telecommunications, wireless, and aerospace and defense industries. Its automatic test equipment products and services include: semiconductor test systems; military/aerospace test instrumentation and systems; storage test systems, circuit-board test and inspection systems; and wireless test systems. The Company's customer base 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 suppliers, wireless product manufacturers, storage device manufacturers, aerospace and military contractors. In 2013, the Company acquired ZTEC Instruments Inc., a supplier of modular wireless test instruments. This helped the Company to expand its Wireless Test Segment into the design verification test of wireless components and chipsets. In semiconductor test, the Company designs, manufactures, sells and support semiconductor test products and services. These test systems are used both for wafer level and device package testing. These chips are used in automotive, industrial, communications, consumer, and computer and electronic game applications, among others. Semiconductor test products and services are sold to integrated device manufacturers 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 outsourced semiconductor assembly and test providers that provide test and assembly services for the final packaged devices to both fabless companies and integrated device manufacturers. In Wireless Test, the acquisition of LitePoint and ZTEC expanded the Company's product offerings in the wireless test industry. LitePoint designs, develops, and supports advanced wireless test equipment for the development and manufacturing of wireless devices, including smart phones, tablets, notebooks/laptops, personal computer peripherals, and other Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cellular enabled devices. The LitePoint IQxstream is an optimized solution for high-speed testing of GSM, EDGE, W-CDMA, HSPA+, CDMA2000, and LTE technologies—used for calibration and verification of smartphones, tablets, and embedded cellular modules. The System Test segment is comprised of three business units: Mil/Aero, Storage Test and Commercial Board Test. In Mil/Aero, the Company's test products are used to ensure the readine
