Commentary On RTGZ’s Past Performance
I look at data from the most recent 12 months, which annualizes the most recent half-year data, or in some cases, the latest annual report is already the most recent financial year data. This allows me to examine different companies in a uniform manner using the most relevant data points. For Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu, its most recent trailing-twelve-month earnings is RUРУБ900.41M, which compared to the previous year’s figure, has jumped up by 14.28%. Since these values are somewhat short-term thinking, I’ve estimated an annualized five-year figure for RTGZ’s net income, which stands at RUРУБ766.94M This means that, generally, Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu has been able to increasingly improve its net income over the last couple of years as well.
What’s the driver of this growth? Well, let’s take a look at whether it is only owing to an industry uplift, or if Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu has seen some company-specific growth. Over the last few years, Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu top-line expansion has outstripped earnings and the growth rate of expenses. Though this brought about a margin contraction, it has cushioned Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu’s earnings contraction. Looking at growth from a sector-level, the RU gas utilities industry has been growing its average earnings by double-digit 15.92% over the past year, and a less exciting 5.69% over the past five years. This suggests that any tailwind the industry is enjoying, Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu has not been able to reap as much as its average peer.
What does this mean?
Though Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu’s past data is helpful, it is only one aspect of my investment thesis. While Gazprom Gazoraspredelenie Rostov-na-Donu has a good historical track record with positive growth and profitability, there’s no certainty that this will extrapolate into the future.
