It hasn't been the best quarter for S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia Open Joint Stock Company (MCX:RKKE) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 11% in that time. But that doesn't change the fact that shareholders have received really good returns over the last five years. In fact, the share price is 131% higher today. We think it's more important to dwell on the long term returns than the short term returns. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.
S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
For the last half decade, S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia can boast revenue growth at a rate of 4.2% per year. Put simply, that growth rate fails to impress. So we wouldn't have expected to see the share price to have lifted 18% for each year during that time, but that's what happened. While we wouldn't be overly concerned, it might be worth checking whether you think the fundamental business gains really justify the share price action. It may be that the market is pretty optimistic about S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia.

What about the Total Shareholder Return (TSR)?
Investors should note that there's a difference between S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia's total shareholder return (TSR) and its share price change, which we've covered above. The TSR attempts to capture the value of dividends (as if they were reinvested) as well as any spin-offs or discounted capital raisings offered to shareholders. Dividends have been really beneficial for S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Public Corporation Energia shareholders, and that cash payout contributed to why its TSR of 142%, over the last 5 years, is better than the share price return.
