We believe investing is smart because history shows that stock markets go higher in the long term. But if when you choose to buy stocks, some of them will be below average performers. Unfortunately for shareholders, while the Arvind SmartSpaces Limited (NSE:ARVSMART) share price is up 55% in the last year, that falls short of the market return. On the other hand, longer term shareholders have had a tougher run, with the stock falling 39% in three years.

To quote Buffett, 'Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace...' One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.

During the last year, Arvind SmartSpaces actually saw its earnings per share drop 60%.

Given the share price gain, we doubt the market is measuring progress with EPS. Therefore, it seems likely that investors are putting more weight on metrics other than EPS, at the moment.

Unfortunately Arvind SmartSpaces' fell 21% over twelve months. So using a snapshot of key business metrics doesn't give us a good picture of why the market is bidding up the stock.
