By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Research and Consulting Services 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.

Acacia Research ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 105.2%. Following is Advisory Board with a future earnings growth of 24.2%. Mistras Group ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 20.0%.

Franklin Covey follows with a future earnings growth of 18.2%, and FTI Consulting rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 16.0%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of FTI Consulting on January 6th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $42.05. Since that call, shares of FTI Consulting have fallen 4.3%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
