Goodfood Market Corp. (TSE:FOOD) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 16% in the last week. But that isn't much consolation for the painful drop we've seen in the last year. To wit, the stock has dropped 72% over the last year. It's not uncommon to see a bounce after a drop like that. Only time will tell if the company can sustain the turnaround.

While the stock has risen 16% in the past week but long term shareholders are still in the red, let's see what the fundamentals can tell us.

Because Goodfood Market 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. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.

Goodfood Market grew its revenue by 13% over the last year. While that may seem decent it isn't great considering the company is still making a loss. Even so you could argue that it's surprising that the share price has tanked 72%. We'd venture this growth was too low to give holders confidence that profitability is on the horizon. But if it will make money, albeit later than previously believed, this could be an opportunity.
