It hasn't been the best quarter for Netanel Group Ltd (TLV:NTGR) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 23% in that time. But in three years the returns have been great. Indeed, the share price is up a very strong 168% in that time. To some, the recent share price pullback wouldn't be surprising after such a good run. The thing to consider is whether the underlying business is doing well enough to support the current price.

Although Netanel Group has shed ₪55m from its market cap this week, let's take a look at its longer term fundamental trends and see if they've driven returns.

While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. 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.

During three years of share price growth, Netanel Group achieved compound earnings per share growth of 706% per year. This EPS growth is higher than the 39% average annual increase in the share price. Therefore, it seems the market has moderated its expectations for growth, somewhat. We'd venture the lowish P/E ratio of 5.66 also reflects the negative sentiment around the stock.

A Different Perspective

Netanel Group shareholders are up 1.0% for the year. But that return falls short of the market. If we look back over five years, the returns are even better, coming in at 11% per year for five years. It may well be that this is a business worth popping on the watching, given the continuing positive reception, over time, from the market. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Netanel Group better, we need to consider many other factors.
