After OneVue Holdings Limited’s (ASX:OVH) earnings announcement in June 2018, analyst consensus outlook appear vastly optimistic, as a 55% rise in profits is expected in the upcoming year, though this is noticeably lower than the past 5-year average earnings growth of 68%. Currently with trailing-twelve-month earnings of AU$7.1m, we can expect this to reach AU$11m by 2020. In this article, I’ve outline a few earnings growth rates to give you a sense of the market sentiment for OneVue Holdings in the longer term. Readers that are interested in understanding the company beyond these figures should research its fundamentals here.
Exciting times ahead?
Longer term expectations from the 4 analysts covering OVH’s stock is one of positive sentiment. Since forecasting becomes more difficult further into the future, broker analysts generally project out to around three years. To get an idea of the overall earnings growth trend for OVH, I’ve plotted out each year’s earnings expectations and inserted a line of best fit to determine an annual rate of growth from the slope of this line.
This results in an annual growth rate of 9.5% based on the most recent earnings level of AU$7.1m to the final forecast of AU$10m by 2022. This leads to an EPS of A$0.039 in the final year of projections relative to the current EPS of A$0.027. This high rate of growth of revenue squeezes margins, as analysts predict an upcoming margin contraction from the current 14% to 14% by the end of 2022.
