By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Life Sciences Tools & 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.

Qiagen Nv ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.4%. Waters Corp is next with a projected earnings growth of 9.8%. Charles River La ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.1%.

Agilent Tech Inc follows with a projected earnings growth of 13.3%, and Bruker Corp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 14.5%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Bruker Corp on August 1st, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $47.16. Since that call, shares of Bruker Corp have fallen 15.7%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
