US Bancorp is suitable for Enterprising Investors but not Defensive Investors, who are concerned about the lack of growth over the last ten years. Enterprising Investors have a shorter horizon of analysis and are very intrigued by the company.
Capital One Financial is a great company for Enterprising Investors to look at in more detail, but it does not quite qualify for the Defensive Investor because it has not shown sufficient growth in its earnings over the ten year historical period. That said, the company passes all of the requirements of the Enterprising Investor.
Hudson City Bancorp does not qualify for either the Defensive Investor or the Enterprising Investor. The company has not shown sufficient earnings stability or growth over the ten year period and has a PEmg ratio that is too high for the Defensive Investor.
