But on the bright side, if you buy shares in a high quality company at the right price, you can gain well over 100%. Long term IXICO plc (LON:IXI) shareholders would be well aware of this, since the stock is up 220% in five years. Better yet, the share price has risen 10% in the last week.

Since it's been a strong week for IXICO shareholders, let's have a look at trend of the longer term fundamentals.

To quote Buffett, 'Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace...' One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).

During the last half decade, IXICO became profitable. Sometimes, the start of profitability is a major inflection point that can signal fast earnings growth to come, which in turn justifies very strong share price gains.

A Different Perspective

While the broader market gained around 29% in the last year, IXICO shareholders lost 1.8%. Even the share prices of good stocks drop sometimes, but we want to see improvements in the fundamental metrics of a business, before getting too interested. On the bright side, long term shareholders have made money, with a gain of 26% per year over half a decade. It could be that the recent sell-off is an opportunity, so it may be worth checking the fundamental data for signs of a long term growth trend. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too. For example, we've discovered 3 warning signs for IXICO (1 is concerning!) that you should be aware of before investing here.
