These days it’s easy to simply buy an index fund, and your returns should (roughly) match the market. But if you pick the right individual stocks, you could make more than that. To wit, the Surevin BPO Services Limited (NSE:SUREVIN) share price is 35% higher than it was a year ago, much better than the market return of around -1.6% (not including dividends) in the same period. So that should have shareholders smiling. Surevin BPO Services hasn’t been listed for long, so it’s still not clear if it is a long term winner.
Given that Surevin BPO Services only made minimal earnings in the last twelve months, we’ll focus on revenue to gauge its business development. As a general rule, we think this kind of company is more comparable to loss-making stocks, since the actual profit is so low. For shareholders to have confidence a company will grow profits significantly, it must grow revenue.
Surevin BPO Services grew its revenue by 16% last year. That’s a fairly respectable growth rate. While the share price performed well, gaining 35% over twelve months, you could argue the revenue growth warranted it. If revenue stays on trend, there may be plenty more share price gains to come. But before deciding this growth stock is underappreciated, you might want to check out profitability trends (and cash flow)
