OM:SVED B Earnings and Revenue Growth January 21st 2022

Although the analyst has upgraded their earnings estimates, there was no change to the consensus price target of kr68.50, suggesting that the forecast performance does not have a long term impact on the company's valuation.

Taking a look at the bigger picture now, one of the ways we can understand these forecasts is to see how they compare to both past performance and industry growth estimates. It's clear from the latest estimates that Svedbergs i Dalstorp's rate of growth is expected to accelerate meaningfully, with the forecast 72% annualised revenue growth to the end of 2022 noticeably faster than its historical growth of 6.6% p.a. 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 Svedbergs i Dalstorp is expected to grow much faster than its industry.

The Bottom Line

The biggest takeaway for us from these new estimates is that the analyst upgraded their earnings per share estimates, with improved earnings power expected for next year. Fortunately, the analyst also upgraded their revenue estimates, and our data indicates sales are expected to perform better than the wider market. Some investors might be disappointed to see that the price target is unchanged, but we feel that improving fundamentals are usually a positive - assuming these forecasts are met! So Svedbergs i Dalstorp could be a good candidate for more research.
