Some Quinsam Capital Corporation (CNSX:QCA) shareholders are probably rather concerned to see the share price fall 30% over the last three months. But over three years, the returns would have left most investors smiling After all, the share price is up a market-beating 100% in that time.
In his essay The Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville Warren Buffett described how share prices do not always rationally reflect the value of a business. One flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.
Quinsam Capital became profitable within the last three years. That kind of transition can be an inflection point that justifies a strong share price gain, just as we have seen here.
It’s probably worth noting we’ve seen significant insider buying in the last quarter, which we consider a positive. That said, we think earnings and revenue growth trends are even more important factors to consider. Dive deeper into the earnings by checking this interactive graph of Quinsam Capital’s earnings, revenue and cash flow.
A Different Perspective
The last twelve months weren’t great for Quinsam Capital shares, which cost holders 44%, including dividends, while the market was up about 0.6%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. Investors are up over three years, booking 26% per year, much better than the more recent returns. The recent sell-off could be an opportunity if the business remains sound, so it may be worth checking the fundamental data for signs of a long-term growth trend. Investors who like to make money usually check up on insider purchases, such as the price paid, and total amount bought.
