While it is useful to understand the growth each year relative to today’s level, it may be more valuable to estimate the rate at which the business is moving on average every year. The benefit of this technique is that we can get a better picture of the direction of Magnit’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 11.39%. This means, we can anticipate Magnit will grow its earnings by 11.39% every year for the next couple of years.
