For example, the Miricor Enterprises Holdings Limited (HKG:1827) share price has soared 149% in the last three years. That sort of return is as solid as granite.

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 flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.
Over the last three years, Miricor Enterprises Holdings failed to grow earnings per share, which fell 11% (annualized).
This means it's unlikely the market is judging the company based on earnings growth. Given this situation, it makes sense to look at other metrics too.
It may well be that Miricor Enterprises Holdings revenue growth rate of 36% over three years has convinced shareholders to believe in a brighter future. If the company is being managed for the long term good, today's shareholders might be right to hold on.
