Autumn Haas

Delek Logistics Partners LP (NYSE:DKL) is predicted to grow its earnings per share by a robust double-digit 46.98% over the next three years. Presently, with an EPS of $1.901, we can expect an upcoming EPS of $2.794. To determine whether this growth rate expectation is justified, we should take a look at how the company has been performing in the past. Check out our latest analysis for Delek Logistics Partners

Can we expect DKL to keep growing?

Analyst expectation from the stock’s 2 analysts is one of positive sentiment, with earnings estimated to expand from current levels of $1.901 to $2.794 over the next couple of years. This indicates a relatively solid earnings per share growth rate of 46.98% over the next few years, which is an optimistic outlook in the near term. In the same period and net income is predicted to escalate from $46M to $68M in the next couple of years, growing by 46.98%. However, margins look rather unappealing at the current levels of revenue and earnings.

Basis for the growth

The past can be an insightful indicator for future performance for a stock. We can determine whether this level of expected growth is highly excessive or whether the company has consistently exhibited strength.

This means DKL has already proven its capacity to grow at an elevated rate, which should give investors higher conviction of analysts’ consensus prediction for the company’s future growth going forward.

    Is Tilray a Better Marijuana Stock to Buy Than Aurora Cannabis?

    Marijuana users are cheering the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in Canada, but it's not just pot advocates who are excited. Investors are also upbeat because the recreational market for marijuana represents a massive opportunity for sales growth for leading Canadian cannabis companies, including Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY) and Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF). Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for years, and while medical marijuana sales total in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually, the potential market opportunity associated with recreational use is significantly bigger.

    United Airlines Reports Another Quarter of Strong Earnings -- for United

    Over the past year or so, I've been rather skeptical about United Continental's (NYSE: UAL) plan to boost its earnings by accelerating its growth rate, particularly in smaller cities. Indeed, United Airlines released another strong earnings report on Tuesday afternoon and raised its full-year guidance for the third consecutive quarter. It now expects to post full-year adjusted earnings per share of $8.00 to $8.75 -- up from an initial guidance range of $6.50 to $8.50 -- even though it is on track to spend an extra $700 million on fuel compared to its original forecast.

    The world's most popular mobile operating system may soon look very different after Google announced that smartphone manufacturers will no longer have free access to popular apps on Android. The licensing fee charge for the Play Store and other Google apps follows a $5 billion fine handed to the technology giant by the European Commission for antitrust violations earlier this year. Until now, Android phones and tablets have all come pre-installed with Google's search engine and Chrome browser, a move that European lawmakers deemed illegal.

    The Legal Way Canadian Marijuana Stocks Are Tricking Investors

    Following nine decades of prohibition, recreational marijuana is officially legal in Canada, albeit the extent of who can buy, whether the plant can be homegrown, and where product can be purchased really depends on the province. The important fact here is that legalization is expected to usher in billions of dollars of added annual revenue to the industry. This expectation of a surge in sales -- Wall Street is looking for approximately $5 billion in added annual revenue once the industry is up to speed -- is what's behind the more than two-year rally in marijuana stocks.

    Caterpillar's stock tumbles to pace Dow losers after disappointing results from industrial sector peers

    Shares of Caterpillar Inc. (cat) tumbled 3.9% in afternoon trade, enough to pace the 28 of 30 Dow Jones Industrial Average (djia) components that were declining, after a number of disappointing earnings reports from industrial-sector peers. The SPDR Industrial Select Sector ETF (xli) of which Caterpillar is a component, slumped 1.9% to a 3 1/2-month low, with 68 of 70 equity components losing ground. The biggest loser in the ETF were shares of United Rentals Inc. (uri) which fell 11.7% to a 13-month low after the company beat earnings and revenue expectations, but UBS cut its price target to $180 from $196 citing disappointing rates.

    Unilever and Nestle, two of Europe's biggest consumer giants, managed to report sales growth that broadly matched analyst estimates on Thursday. Of the two, Marmite-maker Unilever is under the greater pressure to produce better operating results after promising to revive its performance after spurning a generous takeover approach. After successfully fending off Kraft Heinz Co. last year, the Anglo-Dutch conglomerate had planned to simplify its structure into a single holding company in the Netherlands, a move that would have given it more scope to grow through M&A. This month, CEO Paul Polman had to abandon that plan amid opposition from big U.K. shareholders.
