Amigo Holdings PLC (LON:AMGO) shareholders will doubtless be very grateful to see the share price up 63% in the last quarter. But that doesn't change the reality of under-performance over the last twelve months. In fact, the price has declined 31% in a year, falling short of the returns you could get by investing in an index fund.

View our latest analysis for Amigo Holdings

Because Amigo Holdings 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. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.

In just one year Amigo Holdings saw its revenue fall by 26%. That's not what investors generally want to see. The stock price has languished lately, falling 31% in a year. That seems pretty reasonable given the lack of both profits and revenue growth. We think most holders must believe revenue growth will improve, or else costs will decline.

We consider it positive that insiders have made significant purchases in the last year. Even so, future earnings will be far more important to whether current shareholders make money.

A Different Perspective

Given that the market gained 28% in the last year, Amigo Holdings shareholders might be miffed that they lost 31%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. It's great to see a nice little 63% rebound in the last three months. Let's just hope this isn't the widely-feared 'dead cat bounce' (which would indicate further declines to come). It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term.
