The GoGold Resources Inc. (TSE:GGD) share price has had a bad week, falling 14%. In contrast, the return over three years has been impressive. The share price marched upwards over that time, and is now 189% higher than it was. It's not uncommon to see a share price retrace a bit, after a big gain. The thing to consider is whether the underlying business is doing well enough to support the current price.
Given that GoGold 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.
