By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Soft Drinks 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.

Pepsico Inc ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.1%. Following is Coca-Cola Co/The with a projected earnings growth of 9.6%. Dr Pepper Snappl ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 21.6%.

Monster Beverage follows with a projected earnings growth of 34.6%, and Natl Beverage rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 37.3%.
