By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Internet Software & Services 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.

J2 Global Inc ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 8.0%. Verisign Inc is next with a projected earnings growth of 14.6%. Ebay Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 14.7%.

Shutterstock Inc follows with a projected earnings growth of 16.0%, and Webmd Health Cor rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 18.8%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Ebay Inc on April 26th, 2018 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $38.58.
