While it is helpful to be aware of the rate of growth year by year relative to today’s level, it may be more beneficial to evaluate the rate at which the business is growing every year, on average. The benefit of this approach is that we can get a bigger picture of the direction of Hypoport's earnings trajectory over the long run, irrespective of near term fluctuations, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To calculate this rate, I've inserted 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 22%. This means that, we can presume Hypoport will grow its earnings by 22% every year for the next couple of years.
