While it’s informative knowing the growth year by year relative to today’s level, it may be more beneficial gauging the rate at which the earnings are rising or falling every year, on average.

To compute this rate, I’ve inserted a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 76.17%.
