By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Electronic Equipment & Instruments 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.

Control4 Corp ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.6%. Following is Itron Inc with a projected earnings growth of 3.9%. Mts Systems Corp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 6.6%.

Keysight Tec follows with a projected earnings growth of 9.3%, and Flir Systems rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 11.4%.
