Top 5 Companies in the Human Resource & Employment Services Industry With the Highest Projected Earnings Growth (KFRC, HSII, BBSI, MAN, WAGE)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Human Resource & Employment Services industry with the highest 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.

Kforce Inc ranks highest with a projected earnings growth of 35.7%. Following is Heidrick & Strug with a projected earnings growth of 35.1%. Barrett Bus Svcs ranks third highest with a projected earnings growth of 30.5%.

Manpowergroup In follows with a projected earnings growth of 29.6%, and Wageworks rounds out the top five with a projected earnings growth of 29.0%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Wageworks on December 15th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $60.17. Since that call, shares of Wageworks have fallen 24.9%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
