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 bottom third of S&P500 companies. Its 3.8% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -1.1% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 3.4% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
