By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Managed Health Care 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.

Triple-S Mgmt-B ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 0.5%. Following is Magellan Health with a projected earnings growth of 5.9%. Humana Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 19.1%.
