Apr 17, 2018 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) --

Below are the three companies in the Food Distributors 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.Spartannash Co ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 9.3%. United Natural is next with a projected earnings growth of 13.9%. Sysco Corp ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 19.3%.

Andersons Inc follows with a projected earnings growth of 63.7%, and Chefs Warehouse rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 67.0%.
