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.

FormFactor Inc is a technology solutions provider. Its core business involves manufacture of advanced semiconductor probe card products.

FormFactor designs, develops, manufactures, sells, and supports advanced semiconductor probe card products. Probe cards are used to perform wafer tests--in other words, the testing of the semiconductor die, or chips, while the die are still constituted on the semiconductor wafer. Wafer tests enable semiconductor manufacturers to determine whether die will meet specifications and be saleable. FormFactor customizes its probe cards for its customers' unique wafer and chip design, by modifying and adapting their product architectures to meet design layouts. Customers for the company include semiconductor chip manufacturers in the DRAM, Flash, and SoC markets.

Guru Investment Theses on FormFactor Inc

Royce Funds' Bill Hench Comments on FormFactor - May 24, 2017

Next would be FormFactor (Nasdaq, FORM) (NASDAQ:FORM), which is a leading provider of the probe cards used to test semiconductor chips and wafers. It first drew our attention about six years ago as a potential turnaround.



When the small-cap market was nearing a low point in February 2016, FormFactor combined with Cascade Microtech, which gave the new company complementary market leadership positions in semiconductor test, measurement, and characterization applications. Along with buildout-driven demand, the increased addressable market has keyed earnings improvement. We began to sell shares in 2017's first quarter.
