While it’s helpful to understand the rate of growth year by year relative to today’s figure, it may be more valuable to evaluate the rate at which the company is rising or falling every year, on average. The pro of this technique is that we can get a better picture of the direction of Biomerica’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 the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 50.91%. This means that, we can assume Biomerica will grow its earnings by 50.91% every year for the next few years.
