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 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 three years that the share price fell, Bursa de Valori Bucuresti's earnings per share (EPS) dropped by 8.8% each year. In comparison the 4% compound annual share price decline isn't as bad as the EPS drop-off. So the market may not be too worried about the EPS figure, at the moment -- or it may have previously priced some of the drop in.

What About Dividends?

It is important to consider the total shareholder return, as well as the share price return, for any given stock.

It's fair to say that the TSR gives a more complete picture for stocks that pay a dividend. As it happens, Bursa de Valori Bucuresti's TSR for the last 3 years was 1.8%, which exceeds the share price return mentioned earlier. The dividends paid by the company have thusly boosted the total shareholder return.
