Revenue is an important metric for any investor to determine the momentum of a business.
Revenue Forecasts are a key financial indicator for an investor and help determine the outlook of the business performance. When the forecast for the script is marked in Green, it means that the anticipated revenue growth is higher than the last 3-year Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) percentage.
