This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 387. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Accenture PLC will not appeal to momentum investors.

A company's growth metrics are less important than its valuation, moat, and financial strength. However, a check on growth can be a good way to avoid companies in secular decline. The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the top third of S&P 500 companies. Its 13.7% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 4.9% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 15% speak to its impressive growth ranking.
