We feel now is a pretty good time to analyse Full House Resorts, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:FLL) business as it appears the company may be on the cusp of a considerable accomplishment. Full House Resorts, Inc. owns, develops, operates, manages, leases, and invests in casinos, and related hospitality and entertainment facilities in the United States. The company’s loss has recently broadened since it announced a US$5.8m loss in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$7.5m, moving it further away from breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Full House Resorts' investors mind, we've decided to gauge market sentiment. In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.
Consensus from 3 of the American Hospitality analysts is that Full House Resorts is on the verge of breakeven. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2020, before generating positive profits of US$6.2m in 2021. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly a year from now or less! How fast will the company have to grow to reach the consensus forecasts that anticipate breakeven by 2021? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 93% year-on-year, on average, which is rather optimistic! Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.
We're not going to go through company-specific developments for Full House Resorts given that this is a high-level summary, but, bear in mind that typically a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.
One thing we would like to bring into light with Full House Resorts is its debt-to-equity ratio of over 2x. Generally, the rule of thumb is debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, and the company has considerably exceeded this. A higher level of debt requires more stringent capital management which increases the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
