Below are the three companies in the Trucking 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.

Avis Budget Grou ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 14.1%. Following is Ryder System Inc with a projected earnings growth of 22.8%. Landstar System ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 41.2%.

Old Dominion Frt follows with a projected earnings growth of 42.0%, and Hunt (Jb) Trans rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 45.1%.
