Investing in stocks comes with the risk that the share price will fall. And there's no doubt that Blue Moon Group Holdings Limited (HKG:6993) stock has had a really bad year. The share price is down a hefty 64% in that time. Blue Moon Group Holdings may have better days ahead, of course; we've only looked at a one year period. Furthermore, it's down 14% in about a quarter. That's not much fun for holders.

If the past week is anything to go by, investor sentiment for Blue Moon Group Holdings isn't positive, so let's see if there's a mismatch between fundamentals and the share price.

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.

Unhappily, Blue Moon Group Holdings had to report a 24% decline in EPS over the last year. This reduction in EPS is not as bad as the 64% share price fall. Unsurprisingly, given the lack of EPS growth, the market seems to be more cautious about the stock.

A Different Perspective

Blue Moon Group Holdings shareholders are down 63% for the year (even including dividends), even worse than the market loss of 19%. That's disappointing, but it's worth keeping in mind that the market-wide selling wouldn't have helped. The share price decline has continued throughout the most recent three months, down 14%, suggesting an absence of enthusiasm from investors. Given the relatively short history of this stock, we'd remain pretty wary until we see some strong business performance. 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.
