Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Monsanto Co ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.4%. Scotts Miracle is next with a projected earnings growth of 3.8%. Mosaic Co/The ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 30.6%.

Amer Vanguard follows with a projected earnings growth of 42.6%, and Fmc Corp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 125.0%.
