By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Paper Products 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.

Clearwater Paper ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 46.5%. Following is KapStone Paper and Packaging with a future earnings growth of 17.7%. Glatfelter ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 15.8%.

Domtar follows with a future earnings growth of 11.7%, and Neenah Paper rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 11.1%.
