Shares of Sotheby'S Rank the Lowest in Terms of Projected Earnings Growth in the Specialized Consumer Services Industry (BID, SCI, SERV, CSV, HRB)

By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Specialized Consumer Services 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.

Sotheby'S ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 17.3%. Following is Service Corp Int with a projected earnings growth of 17.6%. Servicemaster Gl ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 21.0%.

Carriage Service follows with a projected earnings growth of 32.4%, and H&R Block Inc rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 39.5%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of H&R Block Inc on August 5th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $26.96. Since that call, shares of H&R Block Inc have fallen 10.3%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
