Active investing isn't easy, but for those that do it, the aim is to find the best companies to buy, and to profit handsomely. When you buy and hold the right company, the returns can make a huge difference to both you and your family. For example, the UGE International Ltd. (CVE:UGE) share price rocketed moonwards 733% in just one year. In more good news, the share price has risen 10% in thirty days. And shareholders have also done well over the long term, with an increase of 145% in the last three years.

Anyone who held for that rewarding ride would probably be keen to talk about it.

Check out our latest analysis for UGE International

UGE International isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

In the last year UGE International saw its revenue shrink by 56%. This is in stark contrast to the splendorous stock price, which has rocketed 733% since this time a year ago. It's pretty clear the market isn't basing its valuation on fundamental metrics like revenue. While this gain looks like speculative buying to us, sometimes speculation pays off.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that UGE International has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 733% in the last twelve months. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 5% per year), it would seem that the stock's performance has improved in recent times. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too.
