With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Tuesday Morning Corporation's (NASDAQ:TUEM) future prospects. Tuesday Morning Corporation operates as an off-price retailer in the United States. With the latest financial year loss of US$166m and a trailing-twelve-month loss of US$115m, the US$346m market-cap company alleviated its loss by moving closer towards its target of breakeven. As path to profitability is the topic on Tuesday Morning's 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.
Tuesday Morning is bordering on breakeven, according to some American Multiline Retail analysts. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2020, before turning a profit of US$26m in 2021. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly a year from now or less! At what rate will the company have to grow in order to realise the consensus estimates forecasting breakeven in under 12 months? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 158%, which is extremely buoyant. If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.
Underlying developments driving Tuesday Morning's growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, but, bear in mind that typically a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.
One thing we’d like to point out is that The company has managed its capital prudently, with debt making up 29% of equity. This means that it has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
