While stock picking isn't easy, for those willing to persist and learn, it is possible to buy shares in great companies, and generate wonderful returns. When an investor finds a multi-bagger (a stock that goes up over 200%), it makes a big difference to their portfolio. For example, the Mirbud S.A. (WSE:MRB) share price rocketed moonwards 417% in just one year. It's also good to see the share price up 32% over the last quarter. Also impressive, the stock is up 206% over three years, making long term shareholders happy, too.

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.

Mirbud was able to grow EPS by 26% in the last twelve months. The share price gain of 417% certainly outpaced the EPS growth. This indicates that the market is now more optimistic about the stock.

What about the Total Shareholder Return (TSR)?

Investors should note that there's a difference between Mirbud's total shareholder return (TSR) and its share price change, which we've covered above. Arguably the TSR is a more complete return calculation because it accounts for the value of dividends (as if they were reinvested), along with the hypothetical value of any discounted capital that have been offered to shareholders. Dividends have been really beneficial for Mirbud shareholders, and that cash payout contributed to why its TSR of 424%, over the last year, is better than the share price return.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that Mirbud has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 424% in the last twelve months. That's better than the annualised return of 38% over half a decade, implying that the company is doing better recently. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. 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.
