 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.CA Inc has a Piotroski F Score of 5 out of 9. The F Score examines changes in profitability, leverage, liquidity, and operating efficiency. Interest coverage of 18.31x, a debt/equity ratio of 49% and a Moat Rank of 299 translate to a strong 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 2.6% over the last 12 months. This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 363. Based on its 12 month stock performance, CA Inc will not appeal to momentum investors.

 yield
 value + yield
Shares currently yield 3.26%. Our dividend ranking approach looks at a company's dividend growth rate, payout ratio, business moat, and valuation. Based on our methodology, CA Inc ranks 61 among the S&P 500 constituents. Investors looking for undervalued dividend stocks will want to closely investigate CA Inc.

 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 places it among the bottom third of S&P500 companies. Its -0.4% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -3.5% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 3.5% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
