By Shiri Gupta

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 5.0%. Charles River La is next with a projected earnings growth of 8.3%. Waters Corp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.1%.

Bruker Corp follows with a projected earnings growth of 13.6%, and Agilent Tech Inc rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 13.7%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Bruker Corp on February 8th, 2018 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $32.29. Since that call, shares of Bruker Corp have fallen 6.6%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
