Top 5 Companies in the Building Products Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (APOG, JCI, NX, ALLE, AMWD)

By James Quinn

Below are the three companies in the Building 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.

Apogee Enterpr ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.5%. Johnson Controls is next with a projected earnings growth of 7.7%. Quanex Building ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 12.2%.

Allegion Plc follows with a projected earnings growth of 12.4%, and Amer Woodmark Co rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 14.4%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Amer Woodmark Co on March 8th, 2018 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $124.35.
