By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Homefurnishing 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.

Kirkland's ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 24.2%. Following is Pier 1 Imports with a future earnings growth of 21.2%. Haverty Furniture ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 18.0%.

Select Comfort follows with a future earnings growth of 17.6%, and Williams-Sonoma rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 13.0%.
