Digirad Corporation's (NASDAQ:DRAD) Path To Profitability

With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at the future prospects of Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD). Digirad Corporation provides healthcare solutions in the US and internationally. The company's loss has recently widened since it announced a full fiscal year loss of $ 5.5 million, compared to its most recent twelve-month loss of $ 8.2 million, which is further from breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is Digirad's path to profitability - when will it break even? In this article, we're going to look at expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.
Check out our latest analysis for Digirad
Two of the American Healthcare analysts agree that Digirad is about to break even. They anticipate the company will suffer a final loss in 2021 before turning a positive profit of $ 1.4 million in 2022. The company is therefore expected to break even in about two years. In order to meet this breakeven date, we calculated the company's growth rate compared to the previous year. An average annual growth rate of 101% is expected, which signals a high level of confidence among analysts. Should the business grow more slowly, it will become profitable later than expected.

Earnings per share
The underlying developments that are driving Digirad's growth are not the focus of this comprehensive overview. However, keep in mind that a high rate of growth is generally not uncommon, especially when a company is in an investment phase.
One thing we want to bring to light with Digirad is the relatively high level of debt. As a general rule of thumb, debt shouldn't exceed 40% of your equity, which in Digirad's case is 58%. Note that a higher debt obligation increases the risk of investing in the losing company.
