With trailing-twelve-month net income at current levels of US$398m, we should see this rise to US$449m in 2020. I will provide a brief commentary around the figures and analyst expectations in the near term. For those keen to understand more about other aspects of the company, you can research its fundamentals here.
What can we expect from Tapestry in the longer term?
Over the next three years, it seems the consensus view of the 30 analysts covering TPR is skewed towards the positive sentiment. Given that it becomes hard to forecast far into the future, broker analysts tend to project ahead roughly three years. To understand the overall trajectory of TPR's earnings growth over these next fews years, I've fitted a line through these analyst earnings forecast to determine an annual growth rate from the slope.
From the current net income level of US$398m and the final forecast of US$552m by 2022, the annual rate of growth for TPR’s earnings is 12%. This leads to an EPS of $3.41 in the final year of projections relative to the current EPS of $1.39. With a current profit margin of 6.8%, this movement will result in a margin of 8.0% by 2022.
