Interest coverage of 6.08x, a debt/equity ratio of 310% and a Moat Rank of 89 translate to an average Financial Strength score.

This performance is strong compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 130. CBS Corp's strong 12 month stock performance will appeal to momentum investors.

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 7.9% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -1.6% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of -10.1% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
