While L&C Bio Co., Ltd (KOSDAQ:290650) shareholders are probably generally happy, the stock hasn't had particularly good run recently, with the share price falling 13% in the last quarter. On the other hand, over the last twelve months the stock has delivered rather impressive returns. We're very pleased to report the share price shot up 163% in that time. So some might not be surprised to see the price retrace some. Investors should be wondering whether the business itself has the fundamental value required to continue to drive gains.
To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: Over the short term the market is a voting machine, but over the long term it's a weighing machine. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).
During the last year L&C Bio grew its earnings per share (EPS) by 7.5%. This EPS growth is significantly lower than the 163% increase in the share price. This indicates that the market is now more optimistic about the stock. This favorable sentiment is reflected in its (fairly optimistic) P/E ratio of 108.83.
