By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Consumer Finance 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.

Cash America ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 32.9%. Following is Ezcorp with a future earnings growth of 23.4%. SLM ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 14.3%.

Portfolio Recovery Associates follows with a future earnings growth of 12.5%, and Encore Capital Group rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 12.2%.
