By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Hotels, Resorts & Cruise Lines industry with the lowest 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.

Extended Stay Am ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.7%. Following is Carnival Corp with a projected earnings growth of 12.3%. Royal Caribbean ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 16.3%.

Norwegian Cruise follows with a projected earnings growth of 16.8%, and Wyndham Worldwid rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 21.7%.
