Below are the three companies in the Oil & Gas Refining & Marketing 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.

Tesoro ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 17.5%. World Fuel Services is next with a projected earnings growth of 26.7%. Valero Energy ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 37.6%.

Western Refining follows with a projected earnings growth of 43.6%, and HollyFrontier rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 254.3%.
