In fact, the momentum factor is one of the strongest of all the investment factors.The company has seen its stock fall by -8.07% over the last 12 months. This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 439. Based on its 12 month stock performance, General Mills Inc will not 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 0.5% 5 year annualized EPS growth, 2.2% 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.
