The latest analyst coverage could presage a bad day for National Industrialization Company (TADAWUL:2060), with the analysts making across-the-board cuts to their statutory estimates that might leave shareholders a little shell-shocked. Revenue estimates were cut sharply as analysts signalled a weaker outlook - perhaps a sign that investors should temper their expectations as well.

Following the latest downgrade, the current consensus, from the three analysts covering National Industrialization, is for revenues of ر.س2.8b in 2023, which would reflect a substantial 33% reduction in National Industrialization's sales over the past 12 months. Before the latest update, the analysts were foreseeing ر.س3.2b of revenue in 2023. It looks like forecasts have become a fair bit less optimistic on National Industrialization, given the substantial drop in revenue estimates.

Of course, another way to look at these forecasts is to place them into context against the industry itself. We would also point out that the forecast 27% annualised revenue decline to the end of 2023 is roughly in line with the historical trend, which saw revenues shrink 28% annually over the past five years By contrast, our data suggests that other companies (with analyst coverage) in the industry are forecast to see their revenue shrink 5.5% per year. While this is interesting, National Industrialization's, revenues are still expected to shrink next year, and at a faster rate than the wider industry.
