Shareholders in CytomX Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTMX) may be thrilled to learn that the analysts have just delivered a major upgrade to their near-term forecasts. The revenue forecast for next year has experienced a facelift, with analysts now much more optimistic on its sales pipeline.

Following the upgrade, the latest consensus from CytomX Therapeutics' nine analysts is for revenues of US$73m in 2023, which would reflect an okay 2.1% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Losses are predicted to fall substantially, shrinking 42% to US$0.86. Yet prior to the latest estimates, the analysts had been forecasting revenues of US$64m and losses of US$0.87 per share in 2023. So there's been quite a change-up of views after the recent consensus updates, withthe analysts noticeably increasing their revenue forecasts while also expecting losses per share to hold steady.

One way to get more context on these forecasts is to look at how they compare to both past performance, and how other companies in the same industry are performing. We can infer from the latest estimates that forecasts expect a continuation of CytomX Therapeutics'historical trends, as the 1.7% annualised revenue growth to the end of 2023 is roughly in line with the 1.6% annual revenue growth over the past five years. By contrast, our data suggests that other companies (with analyst coverage) in a similar industry are forecast to see their revenues grow 14% per year. So although CytomX Therapeutics is expected to maintain its revenue growth rate, it's forecast to grow slower than the wider industry.

The Bottom Line

The highlight for us was that the consensus reduced its estimated losses next year, perhaps suggesting CytomX Therapeutics is moving incrementally towards profitability. Pleasantly, analysts also upgraded their revenue estimates, and their forecasts suggest the business is expected to grow slower than the wider market. Seeing the dramatic upgrade to next year's forecasts, it might be time to take another look at CytomX Therapeutics.

Still, the long-term prospects of the business are much more relevant than next year's earnings. At Simply Wall St, we have a full range of analyst estimates for CytomX Therapeutics going out to 2024, and you can see them free on our platform here..
