Is this similar growth to the past?

The past can be an insightful indicator for future performance for a stock. We can determine whether this level of expected growth is sustainable and whether the company continues to go from strength to strength. However, ACET’s earnings growth last year was negative, at -70.49%. Although its past performance illustrates a different picture to earnings growth moving forward, it could also mean ACET is growing off a lower base, meaning a higher growth rate is easier to achieve. This sign change in growth could indicate a turnaround initiative.
