By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Consumer 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.

Weight Watchers ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 30.0%. Following is Carriage Service with a future earnings growth of 15.2%. Sotheby'S ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 15.0%.

Servicemaster Gl follows with a future earnings growth of 13.3%, and Service Corp Int rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 8.9%.
