It's been a soft week for Crossject Société Anonyme (EPA:ALCJ) shares, which are down 13%. While that might be a setback, it doesn't negate the nice returns received over the last twelve months. After all, the share price is up a market-beating 78% in that time.
Crossject Société Anonyme isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
Crossject Société Anonyme grew its revenue by 74% last year. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. While the share price gain of 78% over twelve months is pretty tasty, you might argue it doesn't fully reflect the strong revenue growth. If that's the case, now might be the time to take a close look at Crossject Société Anonyme. Since we evolved from monkeys, we think in linear terms by nature. So if growth goes exponential, opportunity may exist for the enlightened.

A Different Perspective
It's good to see that Crossject Société Anonyme has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 78% in the last twelve months. Notably the five-year annualised TSR loss of 10% per year compares very unfavourably with the recent share price performance. The long term loss makes us cautious, but the short term TSR gain certainly hints at a brighter future. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term.
