Ooma, Inc. (NYSE:OOMA) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 14% in the last quarter. On the other hand the share price is higher than it was three years ago. In that time, it is up 36%, which isn’t bad, but not amazing either.
Given that Ooma didn’t make a profit in the last twelve months, we’ll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. When a company doesn’t make profits, we’d generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
Ooma’s revenue trended up 11% each year over three years. That’s pretty nice growth. The share price gain of 11% per year shows that the market is paying attention to this growth. Of course, valuation is quite sensitive to the rate of growth. Keep in mind that the strength of the balance sheet impacts the options open to the company.
