By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the IT Consulting & Other Services 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.

Mantech International ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 0.3%. International Business Machines is next with a projected earnings growth of 1.4%. NCI ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 2.7%.

Datalink follows with a projected earnings growth of 3.6%, and Booz Allen Hamilton rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 4.7%.
