 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 average. Our analysis of its moat reveals neither a durable moat or enduring competitive advantages. Interest coverage of 4.49x, a debt/equity ratio of 264% and a Moat Rank of 159 translate to a weak Financial Strength score.


 momentum
Investment research has shown that stocks with strong performance over the last 6 to 12 months tend to perform better in the medium term than stocks with poor performance over the same period. In fact, the momentum factor is one of the strongest of all the investment factors. The company has seen its stock appreciate by 20.42% over the last 12 months. This performance is strong compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 153. American Express Co's strong 12 month stock performance will appeal to momentum investors.

 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. 6.5% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 0.9% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 7% combine to produce this average score.
