The answer is A
There is 2 parts you need to know
First, the company's profit cannot be forcast by itself, the profits are being forcast"ed", so the answer is not B.
Second, because the word "forecast" is an irregular verb so we do not add "ed" at the end. so the answer is A

The company's profits are ______ to hit their peak next quarter due to the release of a new line of clothing.
Forecast (預測) 本身是一個不規則動詞，也就是說在過去式及過去分詞時不可加ed。
我們知道，profit (利潤) 是「被」預測，而不是自己預測自己，所以這句要用「被動語態」！
句中，be動詞 are 已出現於空格前，故在空格中須填入forecast的過去分詞。

本題是被動與態, 用過去分詞forecast或forecasted皆可, 選項中只有A正確.

The P.P. for forecast can be "forecasted". However, the person who made this question didn't want the answer to be so obvious, he or she used the other form of P.P. (i.e. forecast). This is really a tricky question.
