growth D / 388
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.

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.
