Some Analysts Just Cut Their The PRS REIT plc (LON:PRSR) Estimates

Simply Wall St
·2 mins read

The latest analyst coverage could presage a bad day for The PRS REIT plc (LON:PRSR), with the analysts making across-the-board cuts to their statutory estimates that might leave shareholders a little shell-shocked. This report focused on revenue estimates, and it looks as though the consensus view of the business has become substantially more conservative.

Following the downgrade, the most recent consensus for PRS REIT from its three analysts is for revenues of UK£24m in 2021 which, if met, would be a substantial 88% increase on its sales over the past 12 months. Before the latest update, the analysts were foreseeing UK£28m of revenue in 2021. The consensus view seems to have become more pessimistic on PRS REIT, noting the measurable cut to revenue estimates in this update.

One way to get more context on these forecasts is to look at how they compare to both past performance, and how other companies in the same industry are performing. It's pretty clear that there is an expectation that PRS REIT's revenue growth will slow down substantially, with revenues next year expected to grow 88%, compared to a historical growth rate of 116% over the past year. Juxtapose this against the other companies in the industry with analyst coverage, which are forecast to grow their revenues (in aggregate) 6.0% next year. Even after the forecast slowdown in growth, it seems obvious that PRS REIT is also expected to grow faster than the wider industry.

The Bottom Line

The clear low-light was that analysts slashing their revenue forecasts for PRS REIT this year. They're also forecasting more rapid revenue growth than the wider market. Overall, given the drastic downgrade to this year's forecasts, we'd be feeling a little more wary of PRS REIT going forwards.
