American Express stock analysis involves checking at least a few of the important things like:

  • Topline: A growing topline, as seen from the American Express revenue chart, as is the case with American Express indicates a growing business. One needs to compare the YoY topline or sales growth of AXP stock with its peers like MCO stock and SYF stock to see if the growth compares well with what can be expected from a company in that industry.
  • Bottom line: The word bottom line comes because it is usually the last line of the income statement and refers to the actual profits after deducting all expenses from the revenues. AXP stock had a poor bottom line growth.

The income statement is also called statement of revenue and expense. The AXP financials along with American Express historical stock prices provide a lot of details about the firm.
