Basis for the growth

The past can be a helpful indicator for future performance for a stock. We can determine whether this level of expected growth is excessive or whether the company continues to go from strength to strength. However, MRVL’s earnings growth in the past couple of years has been negative at -160.58%. Although its past performance is not supportive of a positive growth trend, it could also mean MRVL 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.
