Systemax is Among the Companies in the Computer & Electronics Retail Industry With the Highest Future Earnings Growth (SYX, CONN, GME, BBY, RCII)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Computer & Electronics Retail industry with the highest future earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (next fiscal year estimated vs. current fiscal year estimated) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Systemax ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 52.9%. Conn's is next with a future earnings growth of 44.6%. GameStop ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 10.6%.

Best Buy follows with a future earnings growth of 7.9%, and Rent-A-Center rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 7.1%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Conn's on January 17th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $11.50. Since that call, shares of Conn's have fallen 17.0%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
