Owens-Illinois is Among the Companies in the Metal & Glass Containers Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (OI, ATR, CCK, MYE, GEF)

By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Metal & Glass Containers 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.

Owens-Illinois ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 6.3%. Aptargroup Inc is next with a projected earnings growth of 9.4%. Crown Holdings I ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.3%.

Myers Inds Inc follows with a projected earnings growth of 11.4%, and Greif Inc-Cl A rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 13.7%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Crown Holdings I on November 15th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $58.60. Since that call, shares of Crown Holdings I have fallen 11.4%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
