It is doubtless a positive to see that the Kuuhubb Inc. (CVE:KUU) share price has gained some 66% in the last three months. But that doesn’t change the fact that the returns over the last five years have been less than pleasing. In fact, the share price is down 47%, which falls well short of the return you could get by buying an index fund.
