CT Vision S.L. (International) Holdings (HKG:994) pulls back 14% this week, but still delivers shareholders respectable 6.9% CAGR over 5 years
It might be of some concern to shareholders to see the CT Vision S.L. (International) Holdings Limited (HKG:994) share price down 15% in the last month. On the bright side the returns have been quite good over the last half decade. Its return of 39% has certainly bested the market return! Unfortunately not all shareholders will have held it for the long term, so spare a thought for those caught in the 27% decline over the last twelve months.
In light of the stock dropping 14% in the past week, we want to investigate the longer term story, and see if fundamentals have been the driver of the company's positive five-year return.

Because CT Vision S.L. (International) 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. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good 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 CT Vision S.L. (International) Holdings saw its revenue shrink by 26% per year. Even though revenue hasn't increased, the stock actually gained 7%, per year, during the same period. It's probably worth checking other factors such as the profitability, to try to understand the share price action. It may not be reflecting the revenue.

A Different Perspective
While the broader market gained around 3.2% in the last year, CT Vision S.L. (International) Holdings shareholders lost 27%. 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. Longer term investors wouldn't be so upset, since they would have made 7%, each year, over five years. If the fundamental data continues to indicate long term sustainable growth, the current sell-off could be an opportunity worth considering. 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.
