We'd point out that there was no major changes to their price target of US$19.29, suggesting the latest estimates were not enough to shift their view on the value of the business. There's another way to think about price targets though, and that's to look at the range of price targets put forward by analysts, because a wide range of estimates could suggest a diverse view on possible outcomes for the business. There are some variant perceptions on Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, with the most bullish analyst valuing it at US$23.00 and the most bearish at US$16.00 per share. These price targets show that analysts do have some differing views on the business, but the estimates do not vary enough to suggest to us that some are betting on wild success or utter failure.

Another way we can view these estimates is in the context of the bigger picture, such as how the forecasts stack up against past performance, and whether forecasts are more or less bullish relative to other companies in the industry. One more thing stood out to us about these estimates, and it's the idea that Tanger Factory Outlet Centers' decline is expected to accelerate, with revenues forecast to fall at an annualised rate of 4.9% to the end of 2022. This tops off a historical decline of 3.8% a year 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 revenue grow 7.7% per year. So it's pretty clear that, while it does have declining revenues, the analysts also expect Tanger Factory Outlet Centers to suffer worse than the wider industry.
