By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Aerospace & Defense 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.

Boeing ranks highest with a projected earnings growth of 29.5%. Following is AAR with a projected earnings growth of 22.5%. Astronics ranks third highest with a projected earnings growth of 17.0%.

Mercury Computer Systems follows with a projected earnings growth of 16.3%, and Cubic rounds out the top five with a projected earnings growth of 15.3%.
