By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Cable & Satellite 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.

Dish Network-A ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 8.4%. Following is Comcast Corp-A with a projected earnings growth of 22.0%. Cable One Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 30.6%.

Msg Networks- A follows with a projected earnings growth of 47.5%, and Charter Commun-A rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 95.2%.
