In fact, the momentum factor is one of the strongest of all the investment factors. The company has seen its stock appreciate by 5.04% over the last 12 months. This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 345. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Kimberly-Clark Corp will not appeal to momentum investors.

Its 8.5% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -2.7% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of -146.4% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
