 quality
 moat financial strength
To calculate a company's Moat Score, we look at its historical earnings growth, historical average return on equity, the volatility of its earnings stream, and also factor in the strength of its balance sheet. Our approach concludes the company's business moat is weak. Its position within the Financial sector appears to be weak. Either the dynamics of its sector place it in a difficult position or management's executition is to blame for its disappointing performance. Interest coverage of 13.03x, a debt/equity ratio of 26% and a Moat Rank of 422 translate to an average Financial Strength score.


 momentum

In fact, the momentum factor is one of the strongest of all the investment factors. The company has seen its stock appreciate by 7.81% over the last 12 months. This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 300. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Assurant Inc will not appeal to momentum investors.

 yield
 value + yield

Based on our methodology, Assurant Inc ranks 286 among the S&P 500 constituents. Investors looking for undervalued dividend stocks will probably want to look elsewhere.

 growth
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 produce an average score. 10.3% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -3% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 5.2% combine to produce this average score.
