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.

Micron Technology Inc along with its subsidiaries manufactures semiconductor systems. Its product portfolio consists of memory and storage technologies such as DRAM, NAND, NOR and 3D XPoint memory.

Micron Technology has historically focused on providing dynamic random-access memory for PCs and servers. The firm has expanded into the NAND flash memory market over the past decade. It has also gained a meaningful presence in the NOR flash market with its 2010 Numonyx acquisition and is increasing its DRAM scale with the purchase of Elpida (completed in mid-2013) and Inotera (completed in December 2016).

Guru Investment Theses on Micron Technology Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Micron Technology - Apr 26, 2017

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) was the Fund’s best performer for an impressive fourth consecutive quarter, adding 67 basis points to the return, as its stock soared 31.8% from $21.92 to $28.90. Micron makes two kinds of memory chips, DRAMs (dynamic random access memory) and NAND flash. Prices for both memory chips continue to rise, and the company expects its earnings to reach an all-time high next quarter. Micron has worked hard to move down the cost curve and qualify its products for higher-value uses, which has led to an amazing increase in earnings per share, from a loss of $0.05 only three quarters ago to next quarter’s forecasted gain of $1.50.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Micron Technology - Jan 25, 2017

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) was right on Applied Materials’ heels, adding an amazing 215 basis points to the Fund’s return, as the stock raced higher by 54.8%, from $14.16 to $21.92. It was a rollercoaster year for Micron, as prices of its main product, dynamic random access memory semiconductor chips (also known as DRAMS), were falling sharply to begin the year. DRAM chips are commodities, and their pricing is volatile, going up sharply when demand exceeds supply and dropping suddenly when the balance tilts in the other direction. We invested because production capacity growth had slowed below demand, and we were confident that DRAM prices would eventually rise. Sure enough, in the second half of the year DRAM prices rose sharply, and we’re enjoying the upside.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Micron Technology - Nov 01, 2016

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) was the Fund’s best performer for the second consecutive quarter, adding 119 basis points to the Fund’s return, as its stock soared 29.2% from $13.76 to $17.78. Micron makes semiconductor memory chips, and its stock climbed higher as prices for dynamic random access memory (also known as DRAM) continued to rise, spurred by a recovery in demand for personal computers and strong smartphone growth. Since production capacity is growing at a slower rate than demand, we think DRAM prices have further to run, so we’re holding onto the stock.

Jerome Dodson Comments on Micron Technology - Jul 26, 2016

Our biggest winner was Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU), which boosted the Fund’s return by 101 basis points, as its stock rose 31.4% from $10.47 to $13.76. Micron makes semiconductor memory chips, and its stock jumped as prices for dynamic random access memory (also known as DRAM) increased in June for the first time in two years. Just last quarter, Micron was our biggest loser, as DRAM prices continued their fall and investors fretted that there was no end in sight. Since production capacity is growing at a slower rate than demand, we were confident DRAM prices would eventually stabilize, but we didn’t know precisely when. While we were early with our initial investment, we added to our position on the weakness, and we’re happy our conviction is beginning to pay off. We expect demand growth to continue as computing becomes even more integral to the global economy, which should push Micron’s earnings, and its stock, higher.

Parnassus Fund Comments on Micron Technology - May 09, 2016

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) was our worst performer, as its stock fell 26.1% from $14.16 to $10.47 and reduced the return by 114 basis points. Micron makes semiconductor memory chips, and its stock fell after weaker-than-expected demand for personal computers caused memory chip prices—and Micron’s earnings—to decline. This issue has been affecting the company for over a year now, and the stock has fallen dramatically from its peak of $36.49 in December of 2014. We don’t know precisely when memory chip prices will stabilize, but we’re confident they eventually will. Memory chips benefit from the long-term trends of increasing smartphone penetration in emerging markets; the proliferation of Internet-connected devices, such as watches, cars and industrial machines; and the rapid growth of data centers. Micron is now trading below its book value of $11.80, and we took advantage of the deeply discounted price to add to our position.

David Einhorn Comments on Micron Technology - Jan 19, 2016

MU (NASDAQ:MU) was our biggest winner in 2014 and our biggest loser in 2015. We have written a lotabout it and have exited the position. When all the dust settled, our average purchase was at$19.93 and our average sale was at $22.14, generating an IRR of 14%. The coulda-woulda-shoulda perspective that this was a disaster is belied by the overall decent return we made onthe investment.

David Einhorn Comments on Micron Technology - Nov 19, 2015

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) was our biggest winner in 2014. Unfortunately, we overstayed our welcome and gave back much of those gains this year. The shares peaked at over $36 last December before collapsing to $14.98 on Sept. 30. Our thesis has been that Micron Technology’s primary product, DRAM, has consolidated to three players, who are likely to create more industry profits compared to when DRAM production was highly fragmented.

The problem is that structural industry improvement doesn’t make DRAM less cyclical. The large capital requirements force participants to make large investments in anticipation of future demand. If the industry overestimates demand, it still makes sense to operate at full capacity and oversupply ensues. This year, demand came up short, DRAM prices collapsed, and despite our concerns about PC demand, we missed the turn of the cycle. Those PC demand worries led us to sell LAM Research and Marvell Technology at good prices prior to a sell-off in each security and we shorted (and subsequently covered) Best Buy (NYSE:BBY), IBM (NYSE:IBM) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). Although all of these moves helped, we underestimated the extent of Micron Technology’s exposure to the PC demand shortfall.

Micron Technology’s other business is flash memory or NAND. We anticipated a significant recovery in NAND this year that failed to materialize. Micron Technology is set to earn far less than we expected, and earnings will remain low until supply and demand come into balance.

Two other problems with our thesis have emerged. First, the Chinese have expressed interest in getting into DRAM. Our prior view was that the consolidated industry would not face new entrants. While the Chinese threat is distant, we judge it relevant. Second, Micron Technology announced a much more aggressive capital spending plan for NAND than we envisioned. While management believes that the extra investment will generate adequate returns, we are unconvinced. With separate problems clouding both the short term and long term, we determined that there is enough risk to the thesis to reduce the position. The three large problem positions tell only a part of the portfolio story. The trouble started toward the end of the second quarter. In early June we were up a little for the year, which wasn’t exciting, but we were about even with the market. We had noted it was hard to find things to buy. Then, between June 4 and Aug. 18, we lost more than 14% (41 losing days and 13 winning days) in a flat market. It was a period when cheap stocks got cheaper and expensive stocks became ever dearer.

Notably, we suffered most of our losses prior to the market decline that commenced in late August. As the market fell, our portfolio performed only slightly worse than we would have expected. Our shorts fell almost as much as our longs and we lost only a little more than our net exposure during the correction.

The following table provides additional detail of what happened starting on June 4:

As both the environment and our performance have been challenging, we decided to try to swing a little less hard so we reduced our gross exposure by about 30 points during the quarter. At the same time, we decided not to give up on promising investments. We looked at the entire portfolio and added, held, trimmed or exited depending on the strength of our thesis in conjunction with changing market prices. With the market and our long book cheaper, we decided to modestly increase our net long exposure with most of the change coming from short covering.

In addition to reunderwriting the existing portfolio, we also found two medium-sized new long ideas.
