One thing we could say about the analysts on Ring Energy, Inc. (NYSEMKT:REI) - they aren't optimistic, having just made a major negative revision to their near-term (statutory) forecasts for the organization. This report focused on revenue estimates, and it looks as though the consensus view of the business has become substantially more conservative.

Following the downgrade, the most recent consensus for Ring Energy from its four analysts is for revenues of US$128m in 2021 which, if met, would be a meaningful 18% increase on its sales over the past 12 months. Before the latest update, the analysts were foreseeing US$142m of revenue in 2021. The consensus view seems to have become more pessimistic on Ring Energy, noting the measurable cut to revenue estimates in this update.

Of course, another way to look at these forecasts is to place them into context against the industry itself. We would highlight that Ring Energy's revenue growth is expected to slow, with the forecast 18% annualised growth rate until the end of 2021 being well below the historical 34% p.a. growth over the last five years. By way of comparison, the other companies in this industry with analyst coverage are forecast to grow their revenue at 8.1% annually. Even after the forecast slowdown in growth, it seems obvious that Ring Energy is also expected to grow faster than the wider industry.

The Bottom Line

The clear low-light was that analysts slashing their revenue forecasts for Ring Energy this year. Analysts also expect revenues to grow faster than the wider market. Overall, given the drastic downgrade to this year's forecasts, we'd be feeling a little more wary of Ring Energy going forwards.
