A diverse portfolio of stocks will always have winners and losers. Of course, the aim of the game is to pick stocks that do better than an index fund. One such company is Nature Home Holding Company Limited (HKG:2083), which saw its share price increase 35% in the last year, slightly above the market return of around 31% (not including dividends). Zooming out, the stock is actually down 5.4% in the last three years.

In his essay The Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville Warren Buffett described how share prices do not always rationally reflect the value of a business. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

During the last year, Nature Home Holding actually saw its earnings per share drop 89%.

This means it's unlikely the market is judging the company based on earnings growth. Therefore, it seems likely that investors are putting more weight on metrics other than EPS, at the moment.

However the year on year revenue growth of 15% would help. We do see some companies suppress earnings in order to accelerate revenue growth.

A Different Perspective

Nature Home Holding's TSR for the year was broadly in line with the market average, at 35%. That gain looks pretty satisfying, and it is even better than the five-year TSR of 6% per year. Even if the share price growth slows down from here, there's a good chance that this is business worth watching in the long term. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
