With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Tuesday Morning Corporation's (NASDAQ:TUEM) future prospects. Tuesday Morning Corporation operates as an off-price retailer in the United States. The US$346m market-cap company’s loss lessened since it announced a US$166m loss in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$115m, as it approaches breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is Tuesday Morning's path to profitability – when will it breakeven? In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.

Expectations from some of the American Multiline Retail analysts is that Tuesday Morning is on the verge of breakeven. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of US$26m in 2021. The company is therefore projected to breakeven around 12 months from now or less. At what rate will the company have to grow in order to realise the consensus estimates forecasting breakeven in under 12 months? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 158%, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

Underlying developments driving Tuesday Morning's growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, but, keep in mind that generally a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.

One thing we’d like to point out is that The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 29% of equity. This means that it has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
