By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Aerospace & Defense 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.

United Tech Corp ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 7.2%. Teledyne Tech is next with a projected earnings growth of 8.8%. B/E Aerospace In ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 11.0%.
