Shares of Monsanto Co Rank the Lowest in Terms of Projected Earnings Growth in the Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals Industry (MON, SMG, MOS, AVD, FMC)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Fertilizers & Agricultural Chemicals 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.

Monsanto Co ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.4%. Scotts Miracle is next with a projected earnings growth of 3.8%. Mosaic Co/The ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 30.6%.

Amer Vanguard follows with a projected earnings growth of 42.6%, and Fmc Corp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 125.0%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Amer Vanguard on September 11th, 2018 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $19.98. Since that call, shares of Amer Vanguard have fallen 15.3%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
