Quality
Moat B / 154Financial Strength N/A
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.A debt/equity ratio of 96% and a Moat Rank of 154 translate to a not available Financial Strength score.


Momentum B / 136
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 27.92% over the last 12 months. This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 136. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Bank of America Corp will not appeal to momentum investors.

Yield C / 203

Shares currently yield 1.25%. Our dividend ranking approach looks at a company's dividend growth rate, payout ratio, business moat, and valuation. Based on our methodology, Bank of America Corp ranks 203 among the S&P 500 constituents. Investors looking for undervalued dividend stocks will probably want to look elsewhere.

Growth B / 234
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. 172.4% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -4.4% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 3.6% combine to produce this average score.
