Even though it is useful to understand the growth year by year relative to today’s figure, it may be more valuable evaluating the rate at which the earnings are moving on average every year. The pro of this technique is that we can get a better picture of the direction of Red Rock Resorts’s earnings trajectory over the long run, irrespective of near term fluctuations, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To compute this rate, I put a line of best fit through analyst consensus of forecasted earnings. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 44.61%. This means that, we can presume Red Rock Resorts will grow its earnings by 44.61% every year for the next few years.
