Top 5 Companies in the Multi-line Insurance Industry With the Highest Future Earnings Growth (NGHC, AIZ, AIG, KMPR, HMN)

By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Multi-line Insurance 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.

National General ranks highest with a future earnings growth of 114.6%. Assurant Inc is next with a future earnings growth of 88.6%. American Interna ranks third highest with a future earnings growth of 83.8%.

Kemper Corp follows with a future earnings growth of 79.7%, and Horace Mann Educ rounds out the top five with a future earnings growth of 35.0%.
