The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don’t use leverage) is 100% of your money. But on the bright side, if you buy shares in a high quality company at the right price, you can gain well over 100%. One great example is ENEFI Energiahatékonysági Nyrt. (BUSE:ENEFI) which saw its share price drive 258% higher over five years. It’s also good to see the share price up 86% over the last quarter.
Because ENEFI Energiahatékonysági Nyrt is loss-making, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
Over the last half decade ENEFI Energiahatékonysági Nyrt’s revenue has actually been trending down at about 46% per year. On the other hand, the share price done the opposite, gaining 29%, compound, each year. It just goes to show tht the market is forward looking, and it’s not always easy to predict the future based on past trends. Still, this situation makes us a little wary of the stock.

A Different Perspective
It’s good to see that ENEFI Energiahatékonysági Nyrt has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 132% in the last twelve months. That gain is better than the annual TSR over five years, which is 29%. Therefore it seems like sentiment around the company has been positive lately. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. You might want to assess this data-rich visualization of its earnings, revenue and cash flow.
