Even though it’s helpful to be aware of the rate of growth each year relative to today’s value, it may be more beneficial to evaluate the rate at which the business is moving on average every year. The pro of this approach is that it removes the impact of near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of Falck Renewables’s earnings trajectory over time, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To compute this rate, I’ve appended a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 6.5%. This means, we can assume Falck Renewables will grow its earnings by 6.5% every year for the next few years.
