The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don't use leverage) is 100% of your money. But in contrast you can make much more than 100% if the company does well. For instance the Mincor Resources NL (ASX:MCR) share price is 252% higher than it was three years ago. Most would be happy with that. On top of that, the share price is up 24% in about a quarter. But this could be related to the strong market, which is up 12% in the last three months.
Given that Mincor Resources 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. 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.
Mincor Resources' revenue trended up 109% each year over three years. That's much better than most loss-making companies. Meanwhile, the share price performance has been pretty solid at 52% compound over three years. This suggests the market has recognized the progress the business has made, at least to a significant degree. That's not to say we think the share price is too high. In fact, it might be worth keeping an eye on this one.

A Different Perspective
It's good to see that Mincor Resources has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 51% in the last twelve months. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 4.6% per year), it would seem that the stock's performance has improved in recent times. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Mincor Resources better, we need to consider many other factors.
