By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Health Care 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.

Cross Country He ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 2.6%. Following is Addus Homecare with a projected earnings growth of 6.2%. Civitas Solution ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 6.8%.

Air Methods Corp follows with a projected earnings growth of 14.6%, and Diplomat Pharmac rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 15.5%.
