By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Oil & Gas Exploration & Production 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.

Gulfport Energy ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.5%. Following is Diamondback Ener with a projected earnings growth of 27.4%. W & T Offshore Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 45.5%.

Cimarex Energy C follows with a projected earnings growth of 55.4%, and Eqt Corp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 58.6%.
