Lowest Projected Earnings Growth in the Specialized Finance Industry Detected in Shares of CBOE Holdings (CBOE, FDS, MCO, MSCI, CME)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Finance 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.

CBOE Holdings ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 4.9%. Factset Research Systems is next with a projected earnings growth of 6.7%. Moody's ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.0%.

MSCI follows with a projected earnings growth of 12.6%, and CME Group rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 13.6%.

SmarTrend recommended that subscribers consider buying shares of CME Group on July 6th, 2016 as our technology indicated a new Uptrend was in progress when shares hit $98.01. Since that recommendation, shares of CME Group have risen 9.7%. We continue to monitor CME Group for any potential shift so investors can protect gains and will alert SmarTrend subscribers immediately.
