By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Specialty Stores 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.

Build-A-Bear Wor ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 3.2%. Following is Container Store with a projected earnings growth of 3.3%. Party City Holdc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 7.8%.

Tiffany & Co follows with a projected earnings growth of 8.9%, and Michaels Cos Inc rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 15.2%.
