Celebrations may be in order for Global-e Online Ltd. (NASDAQ:GLBE) shareholders, with the analysts delivering a significant upgrade to their statutory estimates for the company. The revenue forecast for this year has experienced a facelift, with the analysts now much more optimistic on its sales pipeline.
After this upgrade, Global-e Online's nine analysts are now forecasting revenues of US$411m in 2022. This would be a substantial 90% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Prior to the latest estimates, the analysts were forecasting revenues of US$367m in 2022. The consensus has definitely become more optimistic, showing a decent improvement in revenue forecasts.
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. The analysts are definitely expecting Global-e Online's growth to accelerate, with the forecast 90% annualised growth to the end of 2022 ranking favourably alongside historical growth of 53% per annum over the past three years. By contrast, our data suggests that other companies (with analyst coverage) in a similar industry are forecast to grow their revenue at 14% per year. It seems obvious that, while the growth outlook is brighter than the recent past, the analysts also expect Global-e Online to grow faster than the wider industry.
