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.

Ebix ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 1.5%. Following is BroadSoft with a projected earnings growth of 1.6%. Manhattan Associates ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 1.9%.

Fair Isaac follows with a projected earnings growth of 2.6%, and ANSYS rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 3.1%.
