WARREN BUFFETT RANKING
Hartford Financial Services Group Inc ranks 232 out of the S&P 500 constituents in our multi-factor Warren Buffett ranking methodology. This is a average score, meaning it ranks in the middle of the pack on valuation, moat, volatility, and financial strength factors.
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 analysis of its moat reveals neither a durable moat or enduring competitive advantages.
Interest coverage of -31.93x, a debt/equity ratio of 30% and a Moat Rank of 223 translate to a weak Financial Strength score.
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 6.84% over the last 12 months. This performance is average compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 310.
VALUE + YIELD
Shares currently yield 1.79%. Our dividend ranking approach looks at a company's dividend growth rate, payout ratio, business moat, and valuation. Based on our methodology, Hartford Financial Services Group Inc ranks 165 among the S&P 500 constituents.
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 15.1% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -3.8% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of -2.2% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
