This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 264. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Equifax Inc will not appeal to momentum investors.

The company's growth in sales, earnings, and book value places it among the top third of S&P 500 companies. Its 16.5% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 9.9% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 9.3% speak to its impressive growth ranking.
