By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Oil & Gas Refining & Marketing 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.

World Fuel Svcs ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 16.3%. Marathon Petrole is next with a projected earnings growth of 35.9%. Valero Energy ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 50.1%.

Hollyfrontier Co follows with a projected earnings growth of 56.5%, and Phillips 66 rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 65.4%.
