By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Construction & Engineering industry with the highest 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.

Granite Construction ranks highest with a projected earnings growth of 284.4%. Comfort Systems is next with a projected earnings growth of 114.7%. Dycom Industries ranks third highest with a projected earnings growth of 65.2%.

Chicago Bridge & Iron follows with a projected earnings growth of 10.6%, and EMCOR Group rounds out the top five with a projected earnings growth of 8.0%.
