Investors Who Bought Urbanimmersive (CVE:UI) Shares Three Years Ago Are Now Down 62%

While not a mind-blowing move, it is good to see that the Urbanimmersive Inc. (CVE:UI) share price has gained 15% in the last three months. But that doesn’t change the fact that the returns over the last three years have been disappointing. Regrettably, the share price slid 62% in that period. So it is really good to see an improvement. While many would remain nervous, there could be further gains if the business can put its best foot forward.

Urbanimmersive isn’t currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn’t make profits, we’d generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Over three years, Urbanimmersive grew revenue at 59% per year. That is faster than most pre-profit companies. The share price has moved in quite the opposite direction, down 27% over that time, a bad result. It seems likely that the market is worried about the continual losses. But a share price drop of that magnitude could well signal that the market is overly negative on the stock.

A Different Perspective

While the broader market gained around 7.6% in the last year, Urbanimmersive shareholders lost 29%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. Regrettably, last year’s performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 10% per year over five years. Generally speaking long term share price weakness can be a bad sign, though contrarian investors might want to research the stock in hope of a turnaround.
