After Canada Goose Holdings Inc.'s (TSE:GOOS) earnings announcement on 31 March 2019, it seems that analyst forecasts are fairly optimistic, with earnings expected to grow by 33% in the upcoming year, though this is evidently lower than the past 5-year average earnings growth of 54%. By 2020, we can expect Canada Goose Holdings’s bottom line to reach CA$191m, a jump from the current trailing-twelve-month of CA$144m. I will provide a brief commentary around the figures and analyst expectations in the near term. Investors wanting to learn more about other aspects of the company should research its fundamentals here.
Exciting times ahead?
The longer term view from the 16 analysts covering GOOS is one of positive sentiment. Generally, broker analysts tend to make predictions for up to three years given the lack of visibility beyond this point. To reduce the year-on-year volatility of analyst earnings forecast, I've inserted a line of best fit through the expected earnings figures to determine the annual growth rate from the slope of the line.
This results in an annual growth rate of 24% based on the most recent earnings level of CA$144m to the final forecast of CA$302m by 2022. This leads to an EPS of CA$2.66 in the final year of projections relative to the current EPS of CA$1.31. In 2022, GOOS's profit margin will have expanded from 17% to 21%.
