Top 5 Companies in the Health Care Technology Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (CERN, CPSI, HMSY, INOV, MDSO)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Health Care Technology 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.

Cerner Corp ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 11.1%. Following is Computer Program with a projected earnings growth of 16.2%. Hms Holdings Cor ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 16.8%.

Inovalon Holdi-A follows with a projected earnings growth of 17.2%, and Medidata Solutio rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 21.7%.
