Paradise Entertainment Limited (HKG:1180) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 10% in the last week. But if you look at the last five years the returns have not been good. You would have done a lot better buying an index fund, since the stock has dropped 42% in that half decade.

On a more encouraging note the company has added HK$95m to its market cap in just the last 7 days, so let's see if we can determine what's driven the five-year loss for shareholders.

Paradise Entertainment 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.

Over half a decade Paradise Entertainment reduced its trailing twelve month revenue by 13% for each year. That puts it in an unattractive cohort, to put it mildly. On the face of it we'd posit the share price fall of 7% compound, over five years is well justified by the fundamental deterioration. This loss means the stock shareholders are probably pretty annoyed. It is possible for businesses to bounce back but as Buffett says, 'turnarounds seldom turn'.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that Paradise Entertainment has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 6.6% in the last twelve months. That certainly beats the loss of about 7% per year over the last half decade. This makes us a little wary, but the business might have turned around its fortunes.
