Below are the three companies in the Specialty Stores industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Container Store follows with a future earnings growth of 27.6%, and Marinemax Inc rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 25.5%.
