While not a mind-blowing move, it is good to see that the Kokuyo Camlin Limited (NSE:KOKUYOCMLN) share price has gained 16% in the last three months. But that doesn't help the fact that the three year return is less impressive. In fact, the share price is down 48% in the last three years, falling well short of the market return.

After losing 12% this past week, it's worth investigating the company's fundamentals to see what we can infer from past performance.
