Although it is useful to be aware of the rate of growth each year relative to today’s level, it may be more insightful to analyze the rate at which the company is growing every year, on average. The advantage of this technique is that it ignores near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of Warpaint London’s earnings trajectory over time, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To compute this rate, I’ve appended 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 24.25%. This means, we can expect Warpaint London will grow its earnings by 24.25% every year for the next few years.
