Although it’s useful to understand the growth year by year relative to today’s figure, it may be more valuable analyzing the rate at which the company is rising or falling on average every year. The pro of this approach is that we can get a better picture of the direction of Curis’s earnings trajectory over the long run, irrespective of near term fluctuations, fluctuate up and down. To compute this rate, I’ve inserted a line of best fit through analyst consensus of forecasted earnings. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is -2.06%. This means that, we can anticipate Curis will chip away at a rate of -2.06% every year for the next few years.
