WSE:MIL Earnings and Revenue Growth June 6th 2021

The consensus price target rose 7.6% to zł4.09, with the analysts clearly more optimistic about Bank Millennium's prospects following this update. That's not the only conclusion we can draw from this data however, as some investors also like to consider the spread in estimates when evaluating analyst price targets. The most optimistic Bank Millennium analyst has a price target of zł7.70 per share, while the most pessimistic values it at zł2.43. We would probably assign less value to the forecasts in this situation, because such a wide range of estimates could imply that the future of this business is difficult to value accurately. With this in mind, we wouldn't rely too heavily on the consensus price target, as it is just an average and analysts clearly have some deeply divergent views on the business.

Another way we can view these estimates is in the context of the bigger picture, such as how the forecasts stack up against past performance, and whether forecasts are more or less bullish relative to other companies in the industry. The analysts are definitely expecting Bank Millennium's growth to accelerate, with the forecast 15% annualised growth to the end of 2021 ranking favourably alongside historical growth of 9.2% per annum over the past five years. Compare this with other companies in the same industry, which are forecast to grow their revenue 8.7% annually. Factoring in the forecast acceleration in revenue, it's pretty clear that Bank Millennium is expected to grow much faster than its industry.

The Bottom Line

The most important thing to take away from this upgrade is that analysts lifted their revenue estimates for this year. They're also forecasting more rapid revenue growth than the wider market. There was also an increase in the price target, suggesting that there is more optimism baked into the forecasts than there was previously. Seeing the dramatic upgrade to this year's forecasts, it might be time to take another look at Bank Millennium.
