By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Soft Drinks industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Dr Pepper Snappl ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.4%. Following is Pepsico Inc with a projected earnings growth of 6.3%. Monster Beverage ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 15.4%.

Coca-Cola Bottli follows with a projected earnings growth of 68.4%, and Natl Beverage rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 72.4%.
