Top 5 Companies in the Investment Banking & Brokerage Industry With the Highest Future Earnings Growth (ITG, KCG, VIRT, OPY, COWN)

By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Investment Banking & Brokerage 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.

Investment Tech ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 327.5%. Kcg Holdings-A is next with a future earnings growth of 130.2%. Virtu Financia-A ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 127.2%.

Oppenheimer Ho-A follows with a future earnings growth of 112.0%, and Cowen Inc rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 76.4%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Cowen Inc on November 15th, 2017 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $13.90. Since that call, shares of Cowen Inc have fallen 6.8%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
