NasdaqGM:MIRM Earnings and Revenue Growth August 9th 2021

Taking into account the latest results, the most recent consensus for Mirum Pharmaceuticals from seven analysts is for revenues of US$37.0m in 2021 which, if met, would be a sizeable 237% increase on its sales over the past 12 months. Losses are forecast to narrow 2.2% to US$5.37 per share. Before this latest report, the consensus had been expecting revenues of US$38.8m and US$3.83 per share in losses. So it's pretty clear the analysts have mixed opinions on Mirum Pharmaceuticals after this update; revenues were downgraded and per-share losses expected to increase.

The average price target was broadly unchanged at US$49.43, perhaps implicitly signalling that the weaker earnings outlook is not expected to have a long-term impact on the valuation. 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. Currently, the most bullish analyst values Mirum Pharmaceuticals at US$77.00 per share, while the most bearish prices it at US$30.00. Note the wide gap in analyst price targets? This implies to us that there is a fairly broad range of possible scenarios for the underlying business.

The Bottom Line

The most important thing to take away is that the analysts increased their loss per share estimates for next year. They also downgraded their revenue estimates, although industry data suggests that Mirum Pharmaceuticals' revenues are expected to grow faster than the wider industry. There was no real change to the consensus price target, suggesting that the intrinsic value of the business has not undergone any major changes with the latest estimates.

Following on from that line of thought, we think that the long-term prospects of the business are much more relevant than next year's earnings. We have estimates - from multiple Mirum Pharmaceuticals analysts - going out to 2023, and you can see them free on our platform here.
