These days it's easy to simply buy an index fund, and your returns should (roughly) match the market. But one can do better than that by picking better than average stocks (as part of a diversified portfolio). For example, the MoneyMe Limited (ASX:MME) share price is up 45% in the last 1 year, clearly besting the market return of around 21% (not including dividends). So that should have shareholders smiling. MoneyMe hasn't been listed for long, so it's still not clear if it is a long term winner.

On the back of a solid 7-day performance, let's check what role the company's fundamentals have played in driving long term shareholder returns.

Given that MoneyMe 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. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.

In the last year MoneyMe saw its revenue shrink by 6.2%. Despite the lack of revenue growth, the stock has returned a solid 45% the last twelve months. To us that means that there isn't a lot of correlation between the past revenue performance and the share price, but a closer look at analyst forecasts and the bottom line may well explain a lot.

A Different Perspective

It's nice to see that MoneyMe shareholders have gained 45% over the last year. The more recent returns haven't been as impressive as the longer term returns, coming in at just 7.5%. Having said that, we doubt shareholders would be concerned. It seems the market is simply waiting on more information, because if the business delivers so will the share price (eventually).
