By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Office Services & Supplies 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.

Pitney Bowes Inc ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.1%. Herman Miller is next with a projected earnings growth of 7.7%. Essendant Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 13.4%.

Acco Brands Corp follows with a projected earnings growth of 13.4%, and Msa Safety Inc rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 14.6%.
