Navient Corp has the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth in the Consumer Finance Industry (NAVI, ECPG, NNI, AXP, RM)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Consumer Finance 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.

Navient Corp ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 5.5%. Following is Encore Capital G with a projected earnings growth of 15.4%. Nelnet Inc-Cl A ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 21.3%.

American Express follows with a projected earnings growth of 23.3%, and Regional Managem rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 23.3%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Nelnet Inc-Cl A on December 27th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $58.52. Since that call, shares of Nelnet Inc-Cl A have fallen 18.2%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
