By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Research and Consulting Services industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Acacia Research ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 105.2%. Following is Advisory Board with a future earnings growth of 24.2%. Mistras Group ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 20.0%.

Franklin Covey follows with a future earnings growth of 18.2%, and FTI Consulting rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 16.0%.
