Veloxis Pharmaceuticals (CPH:VELO) Shareholders Have Enjoyed An Impressive 178% Share Price Gain

Veloxis Pharmaceuticals A/S (CPH:VELO) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 13% in the last month. But that scarcely detracts from the really solid long term returns generated by the company over five years. In fact, the share price is 178% higher today. To some, the recent pullback wouldn’t be surprising after such a fast rise. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.

Veloxis Pharmaceuticals 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. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That’s because it’s hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.

In the last 5 years Veloxis Pharmaceuticals saw its revenue grow at 31% per year. That’s well above most pre-profit companies. So it’s not entirely surprising that the share price reflected this performance by increasing at a rate of 23% per year, in that time. This suggests the market has well and truly recognized the progress the business has made. To our minds that makes Veloxis Pharmaceuticals worth investigating – it may have its best days ahead.
