The most recent earnings release MyState Limited’s (ASX:MYS) announced in June 2018 showed that the company experienced a small tailwind, eventuating to a single-digit earnings growth of 4.6%. Below, I’ve laid out key growth figures on how market analysts perceive MyState’s earnings growth outlook over the next few years and whether the future looks even brighter than the past. I will be using net income excluding extraordinary items in order to exclude one-off volatility which I am not interested in.

Check out our latest analysis for MyState

Market analysts’ prospects for next year seems rather subdued, with earnings expanding by a single digit 4.3%. The growth outlook in the following year seems much more optimistic with rates generating double digit 11% compared to today’s earnings, and finally hitting AU$37m by 2021.

While it is helpful to be aware of the growth each year relative to today’s level, it may be more beneficial to estimate the rate at which the earnings are moving every year, on average. The benefit of this technique is that it ignores near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of MyState’s earnings trajectory over time, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To calculate this rate, I put a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 5.4%. This means, we can anticipate MyState will grow its earnings by 5.4% every year for the next couple of years.
