By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Building Products 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.

Amer Woodmark Co ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 2.5%. Following is Johnson Controls with a projected earnings growth of 7.8%. Apogee Enterpr ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.9%.

Allegion Plc follows with a projected earnings growth of 12.1%, and Insteel Inds rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 15.2%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Insteel Inds on April 18th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $19.28.
