PAX Global Technology Limited’s (HKG:327) latest earnings announcement in December 2018 signalled that the company experienced a strong tailwind, eventuating to a double-digit earnings growth of 28%. Below, I’ve laid out key growth figures on how market analysts view PAX Global Technology’s earnings growth trajectory over the next couple of 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.
Market analysts’ prospects for this coming year seems buoyant, with earnings rising by a robust 11%. This growth seems to continue into the following year with rates arriving at double digit 32% compared to today’s earnings, and finally hitting HK$797m by 2022.
While it’s useful to understand the rate of growth each year relative to today’s figure, it may be more insightful analyzing the rate at which the earnings are rising or falling every year, on average. The benefit of this method is that we can get a better picture of the direction of PAX Global Technology’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 appended 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 15%. This means that, we can expect PAX Global Technology will grow its earnings by 15% every year for the next few years.
