The Cornerstone Value Strategy looks for large, well known companies whose market cap is greater than $1 billion. These companies exhibit solid and stable earnings. ACN's market cap of $$74,346 million passes this test.


The second criterion requires that the company exhibit strong cash flows. Companies with strong cash flow are typically the value oriented investments that this strategy looks for. The company's cash flow per share must be greater than the mean of the market cash flow per share ($1.34). ACN's cash flow per share of $7.25 passes this test.


This particular strategy looks for companies whose total number of outstanding shares are in excess of the market average (605 million shares). These are the more well known and highly traded companies. ACN, who has 666 million shares outstanding, passes this test.


A company's trailing 12 month sales ($34,197 million) are required to be 1.5 times greater than the mean of the market's trailing 12 month sales ($20,632 million). ACN passes this test.


The final step in the Cornerstone Value strategy is to select the 50 companies from the market leaders group (those that have passed the previous four criteria) that have the highest dividend yield. ACN, with a dividend yield of 1.92%, is one of the 50 companies that satisfy this last criterion.
