Top 5 Companies in the Food Retail Industry With the Highest Future Earnings Growth (IMKTA, CASY, KR, SVU, WFM)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Food 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.

Ingles Markets ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 15.3%. Following is Casey's General Stores with a future earnings growth of 9.3%. Kroger ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 9.1%.

SUPERVALU follows with a future earnings growth of 5.7%, and Whole Foods Market rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 5.6%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of SUPERVALU on May 2nd, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $5.02.
