Passive investing in index funds can generate returns that roughly match the overall market. But investors can boost returns by picking market-beating companies to own shares in. For example, the Inox Wind Energy Limited (NSE:IWEL) share price is up 57% in the last 1 year, clearly besting the market decline of around 3.0% (not including dividends). That's a solid performance by our standards! Note that businesses generally develop over the long term, so the returns over the last year might not reflect a long term trend.

Since the stock has added ₹2.1b to its market cap in the past week alone, let's see if underlying performance has been driving long-term returns.

Given that Inox Wind Energy didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.

Inox Wind Energy actually shrunk its revenue over the last year, with a reduction of 10%. Despite the lack of revenue growth, the stock has returned a solid 57% the last twelve months. To us that means that there isn't a lot of correlation between the past revenue performance and the share price, but a closer look at analyst forecasts and the bottom line may well explain a lot.
