Investing in stocks inevitably means buying into some companies that perform poorly. Long term SiS International Holdings Limited (HKG:529) shareholders know that all too well, since the share price is down considerably over three years. Regrettably, they have had to cope with a 55% drop in the share price over that period.

With that in mind, it's worth seeing if the company's underlying fundamentals have been the driver of long term performance, or if there are some discrepancies.

There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).

During five years of share price growth, SiS International Holdings moved from a loss to profitability. That would generally be considered a positive, so we are surprised to see the share price is down. So given the share price is down it's worth checking some other metrics too.

We note that, in three years, revenue has actually grown at a 20% annual rate, so that doesn't seem to be a reason to sell shares. It's probably worth investigating SiS International Holdings further; while we may be missing something on this analysis, there might also be an opportunity.
