By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Airlines 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.

Delta Air Lines ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 41.5%. Alaska Air Group is next with a projected earnings growth of 54.5%. Southwest Airlines ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 75.9%.

Hawaiian Holdings follows with a projected earnings growth of 95.9%, and Allegiant Travel rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 97.8%.
