NasdaqCM: NEO Earnings and Revenue Growth August 11, 2022

Following last week’s earnings report, NeoGenomics’ 13 analysts expect 2022 revenue to be $490.4 million, which is roughly in line with the past 12 months. Losses per share are expected to rise sharply to US$1.33. Prior to this latest report, consensus had expected revenue of $501.2 million and losses of $1.34 per share.

There was no real change from the average price target of $17.09, suggesting that revisions to earnings estimates should not have a long-term impact on NeoGenomics’ valuation. . It might also be instructive to look at the range of analysts’ estimates, to gauge how different the outlier opinions are from the mean. There are variations in perception on NeoGenomics, with the most bullish analyst pricing it at US$26.00 and the most bearish at US$12.00 per share. Notice the wide gap between analyst price targets? This implies to us that there is a fairly wide range of possible scenarios for the underlying activity.

Looking now at the big picture, one way to understand these forecasts is to see how they compare to past performance and industry growth estimates. We emphasize that NeoGenomics revenue growth is expected to slow, with the projected annualized growth rate of 0.4% through the end of 2022 being well below the historic growth of 17% per year over the past five years. By comparison, other companies in this industry covered by analysts are expected to grow revenue by 6.9% annually. So it’s pretty clear that while revenue growth is expected to slow, the broader industry is also expected to grow faster than NeoGenomics.

The essential

The most important thing to remember is that analysts have reconfirmed their loss per share estimates for next year. On the negative side, they have also lowered their revenue estimates, and the forecast implies that revenue will underperform the overall industry. There was no real change from the consensus price target, suggesting that the company’s intrinsic value has not undergone major changes with the latest estimates.

That said, the company’s long-term earnings trajectory is much more important than next year. We have forecasts for NeoGenomics until 2024, and you can see them for free on our platform here.
