The latest earnings release Evolution Mining Limited’s (ASX:EVN) announced in June 2018 confirmed that the business gained from a robust tailwind, leading to a double-digit earnings growth of 21%. Below, I’ve laid out key growth figures on how market analysts perceive Evolution Mining’s earnings growth outlook over the next couple of years and whether the future looks even brighter than the past. I will be looking at earnings excluding extraordinary items to exclude one-off activities to get a better understanding of the underlying drivers of earnings.
Market analysts’ consensus outlook for next year seems pessimistic, with earnings reducing by a double-digit -13%. However, the next few years seem to illustrate a completely different picture, with expected earnings growth rates generating double digit 17% compared to today’s level and continues to increase.
Even though it’s helpful to be aware of the growth each year relative to today’s level, it may be more beneficial to estimate the rate at which the earnings are growing every year, on average. The pro of this approach is that it ignores near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of Evolution Mining’s earnings trajectory over time, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To calculate this rate, I’ve appended 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 9.8%. This means, we can anticipate Evolution Mining will grow its earnings by 9.8% every year for the next few years.
