By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Broadcasting 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.

Discovery Comm-A ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.3%. Discovery Comm-C is next with a projected earnings growth of 10.3%. Amc Networks-A ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 13.4%.

Cbs Corp-B follows with a projected earnings growth of 25.5%, and Entercom Comm-A rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 33.8%.
