It hasn't been the best quarter for ESE Entertainment Inc. (CVE:ESE) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 15% in that time. But over the last year the share price has taken off like one of Elon Musk's rockets. In that time, shareholders have had the pleasure of a 549% boost to the share price. So it is not that surprising to see the stock retrace a little. The real question is whether the fundamental business performance can justify the strong increase over the long term. We love happy stories like this one. The company should be really proud of that performance!
Since it's been a strong week for ESE Entertainment shareholders, let's have a look at trend of the longer term fundamentals.
Because ESE Entertainment made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
In the last year ESE Entertainment saw its revenue grow by 1,728%. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. But the share price seems headed to the moon, up 549% as previously highlighted. Even the most bullish shareholders might be thinking that the share price might drop back a bit, after a gain like that. So this looks like a great watchlist candidate for investors who look for high growth inflexion points.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that ESE Entertainment shareholders have gained 549% over the last year. We regret to report that the share price is down 15% over ninety days. Shorter term share price moves often don't signify much about the business itself. 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. Take risks, for example - ESE Entertainment has 5 warning signs (and 1 which is a bit unpleasant) we think you should know about.
