It is a pleasure to report that the Bharatiya Global Infomedia Limited (NSE:BGLOBAL) is up 65% in the last quarter. But only the myopic could ignore the astounding decline over three years. Indeed, the share price is down a whopping 74% in the last three years. So we’re relieved for long term holders to see a bit of uplift. Only time will tell if the company can sustain the turnaround.
While Bharatiya Global Infomedia made a small profit, in the last year, we think that the market is probably more focussed on the top line growth at the moment. As a general rule, we think this kind of company is more comparable to loss-making stocks, since the actual profit is so low. For shareholders to have confidence a company will grow profits significantly, it must grow revenue.

A Different Perspective
Investors in Bharatiya Global Infomedia had a tough year, with a total loss of 25%, against a market gain of about 7.2%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. Regrettably, last year’s performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 12% per year over five years. Generally speaking long term share price weakness can be a bad sign, though contrarian investors might want to research the stock in hope of a turnaround. You might want to assess this data-rich visualization of its earnings, revenue and cash flow.
