By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Consumer Services industry with the highest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

H&R Block ranks highest with a forward earnings yield of 9.6%. Following is Weight Watchers with a forward earnings yield of 6.9%. Carriage Services ranks third highest with a forward earnings yield of 6.4%.

Steiner Leisure follows with a forward earnings yield of 5.3%, and Sotheby's rounds out the top five with a forward earnings yield of 4.5%.
