The Kraken Robotics (CVE:PNG) Share Price Is Up 167% And Shareholders Are Boasting About It

Kraken Robotics Inc. (CVE:PNG) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 20% in the last month. But that doesn’t undermine the rather lovely longer-term return, if you measure over the last three years. The share price marched upwards over that time, and is now 167% higher than it was. It’s not uncommon to see a share price retrace a bit, after a big gain. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.

View our latest analysis for Kraken Robotics

Kraken Robotics isn’t a profitable company, so it is unlikely we’ll see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS). Arguably revenue is our next best option. When a company doesn’t make profits, we’d generally expect to see good revenue growth. 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 3 years Kraken Robotics saw its revenue grow at 56% per year. That’s well above most pre-profit companies. Meanwhile, the share price performance has been pretty solid at 39% compound over three years. But it does seem like the market is paying attention to strong revenue growth. That’s not to say we think the share price is too high. In fact, it might be worth keeping an eye on this one.
