One way to deal with stock volatility is to ensure you have a properly diverse portfolio. Of course, the aim of the game is to pick stocks that do better than an index fund. One such company is Newtree Co.,Ltd. (KOSDAQ:270870), which saw its share price increase 61% in the last year, slightly above the market return of around 51% (not including dividends). We'll need to follow NewtreeLtd for a while to get a better sense of its share price trend, since it hasn't been listed for particularly long.

While the efficient markets hypothesis continues to be taught by some, it has been proven that markets are over-reactive dynamic systems, and investors are not always rational. 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.

NewtreeLtd was able to grow EPS by 211% in the last twelve months. It's fair to say that the share price gain of 61% did not keep pace with the EPS growth. So it seems like the market has cooled on NewtreeLtd, despite the growth. Interesting.

It's nice to see that NewtreeLtd shareholders have gained 63% over the last year, including dividends. And the share price momentum remains respectable, with a gain of 29% in the last three months. Demand for the stock from multiple parties is pushing the price higher; it could be that word is getting out about its virtues as a business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
