Analysts’ expectations for this coming year seems optimistic, with earnings rising by a significant 67%. This strong growth in earnings is expected to continue, bringing the bottom line up to US$141m by 2022.
Even though it is informative understanding the rate of growth each year relative to today’s value, it may be more valuable determining the rate at which the company is rising or falling on average every year. The advantage of this method is that we can get a better picture of the direction of Trulieve Cannabis’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’ve appended a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 34%. This means, we can presume Trulieve Cannabis will grow its earnings by 34% every year for the next few years.
