Market analysts' consensus outlook for next year seems pessimistic, with earnings decreasing by -2.3%. But in the following year, there is a complete contrast in performance, with reaching double digit 14% compared to today’s level and continues to increase to ₹1.9b in 2022.
Even though it’s informative understanding the growth year by year relative to today’s value, it may be more insightful to estimate the rate at which the earnings are growing on average every year. The benefit of this technique is that we can get a bigger picture of the direction of Tejas Networks's earnings trajectory over the long run, irrespective of near term fluctuations, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To compute this rate, I put 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 7.8%. This means that, we can anticipate Tejas Networks will grow its earnings by 7.8% every year for the next few years.
