The simplest way to invest in stocks is to buy exchange traded funds. But if you pick the right individual stocks, you could make more than that. For example, the 5paisa Capital Limited (NSE:5PAISA) share price is up 94% in the last year, clearly besting the market return of around 0.2% (not including dividends). So that should have shareholders smiling. We'll need to follow 5paisa Capital for a while to get a better sense of its share price trend, since it hasn't been listed for particularly long.
While 5paisa Capital made a small profit, in the last year, we think that the market is probably more focussed on the top line growth at the moment. As a general rule, we think this kind of company is more comparable to loss-making stocks, since the actual profit is so low. It would be hard to believe in a more profitable future without growing revenues.
In the last year 5paisa Capital saw its revenue grow by 82%. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. While the share price gain of 94% over twelve months is pretty tasty, you might argue it doesn't fully reflect the strong revenue growth. If that's the case, now might be the time to take a close look at 5paisa Capital. Human beings have trouble conceptualizing (and valuing) exponential growth. Is that what we're seeing here?
