Looking at Logan Property Holdings Company Limited's (HKG:3380) earnings update in December 2018, analysts seem fairly confident, with profits predicted to increase by 20% next year, though this is relatively lower than the historical 5-year average earnings growth of 29%. With trailing-twelve-month net income at current levels of CN¥8.1b, we should see this rise to CN¥9.8b in 2020. Below is a brief commentary on the longer term outlook the market has for Logan Property Holdings. Readers that are interested in understanding the company beyond these figures should research its fundamentals here.
How is Logan Property Holdings going to perform in the near future?
Longer term expectations from the 15 analysts covering 3380’s stock is one of positive sentiment. Broker analysts tend to forecast up to three years ahead due to a lack of clarity around the business trajectory beyond this. I've plotted out each year's earnings expectations and inserted a line of best fit to calculate an annual growth rate from the slope in order to understand the overall trajectory of 3380's earnings growth over these next few years.
By 2022, 3380's earnings should reach CN¥15b, from current levels of CN¥8.1b, resulting in an annual growth rate of 22%. EPS reaches CN¥2.76 in the final year of forecast compared to the current CN¥1.48 EPS today. This high rate of growth of revenue squeezes margins, as analysts predict an upcoming margin contraction from the current 18% to 15% by the end of 2022.
