Loews Corp ranks 66 out of the S&P 500 constituents on valuation--a relatively strong score.

Quality
Moat D / 443Financial Strength N/A
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 approach concludes the company's business moat is weak. Its position within the Financial sector appears to be weak. Either the dynamics of its sector place it in a difficult position or management's executition is to blame for its disappointing performance.A debt/equity ratio of 48% and a Moat Rank of 443 translate to a not available Financial Strength score.


Momentum C / 305
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 9.04% over the last 12 months. This performance is weak compared to other stocks in the S&P 500, earning it a rank of 305. Based on its 12 month stock performance, Loews Corp will not appeal to momentum investors.

Yield A / 18
Value + Yield
Shares currently yield 0.47%. Our dividend ranking approach looks at a company's dividend growth rate, payout ratio, business moat, and valuation. Based on our methodology, Loews Corp ranks 18 among the S&P 500 constituents. Investors looking for undervalued dividend stocks will want to closely investigate Loews Corp.

Growth D / 401
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 -6% 5 year annualized EPS growth, -1.9% 5 year annualized sales-per-share growth, and 5 year annualized book value-per-share growth of 2.6% speak to its relatively poor ranking.
