By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Application Software 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.

Synopsys Inc ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 1.1%. Following is Aspen Technology with a projected earnings growth of 1.8%. Zix Corp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.9%.

Nuance Communica follows with a projected earnings growth of 6.9%, and Citrix Systems rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 8.8%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Citrix Systems on July 25th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $96.06.
