When you buy shares in a company, there is always a risk that the price drops to zero. But if you pick the right stock, you can make a lot more than 100%. Take, for example Himatsingka Seide Limited (NSE:HIMATSEIDE). Its share price is already up an impressive 233% in the last twelve months. On top of that, the share price is up 54% in about a quarter. The longer term returns have not been as good, with the stock price only 22% higher than it was three years ago.

Since it's been a strong week for Himatsingka Seide shareholders, let's have a look at trend of the longer term fundamentals.

There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

During the last year Himatsingka Seide grew its earnings per share, moving from a loss to a profit.

When a company has just transitioned to profitability, earnings per share growth is not always the best way to look at the share price action.

We are skeptical of the suggestion that the 0.2% dividend yield would entice buyers to the stock. We think that the revenue growth of 53% could have some investors interested. We do see some companies suppress earnings in order to accelerate revenue growth.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that Himatsingka Seide has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 233% in the last twelve months. And that does include the dividend. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 1.0% per year), it would seem that the stock's performance has improved in recent times. Someone with an optimistic perspective could view the recent improvement in TSR as indicating that the business itself is getting better with time. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Himatsingka Seide better, we need to consider many other factors. Even so, be aware that Himatsingka Seide is showing 2 warning signs in our investment analysis , and 1 of those makes us a bit uncomfortable...
