By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Household Products 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.

Procter & Gamble ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 6.9%. Wd-40 Co is next with a projected earnings growth of 9.2%. Colgate-Palmoliv ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 10.3%.

Kimberly-Clark follows with a projected earnings growth of 11.1%, and Energizer Holdin rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 13.1%.
