Some stocks are best avoided. We really hate to see fellow investors lose their hard-earned money. Imagine if you held Goenka Diamond and Jewels Limited (NSE:GOENKA) for half a decade as the share price tanked 94%. Unfortunately the share price momentum is still quite negative, with prices down 33% in thirty days.
While a drop like that is definitely a body blow, money isn’t as important as health and happiness.
Given that Goenka Diamond and Jewels 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. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
The graphic below depicts how earnings and revenue have changed over time.
We’re pleased to report that the CEO is remunerated more modestly than most CEOs at similarly capitalized companies. But while CEO remuneration is always worth checking, the really important question is whether the company can grow earnings going forward. Dive deeper into the earnings by checking this interactive graph of Goenka Diamond and Jewels’s earnings, revenue and cash flow.
A Different Perspective
Investors in Goenka Diamond and Jewels had a tough year, with a total loss of 20%, against a market gain of about 8.2%. Even the share prices of good stocks drop sometimes, but we want to see improvements in the fundamental metrics of a business, before getting too interested. Unfortunately, longer term shareholders are suffering worse, given the loss of 44% doled out over the last five years. We’d need to see some sustained improvements in the key metrics before we could muster much enthusiasm. Shareholders might want to examine this detailed historical graph of past earnings, revenue and cash flow.
