As an investor its worth striving to ensure your overall portfolio beats the market average. But the risk of stock picking is that you will likely buy under-performing companies. We regret to report that long term Public Joint Stock Company United Aircraft Corporation (MCX:UNAC) shareholders have had that experience, with the share price dropping 49% in three years, versus a market return of about 50%. And more recent buyers are having a tough time too, with a drop of 40% in the last year. It's down 3.9% in the last seven days.

Given that United Aircraft didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.

Over the last three years, United Aircraft's revenue dropped 12% per year. That's not what investors generally want to see. The annual decline of 14% per year in that period has clearly disappointed holders. And with no profits, and weak revenue, are you surprised? However, in this kind of situation you can sometimes find opportunity, where sentiment is negative but the company is actually making good progress.

A Different Perspective

United Aircraft shareholders are down 40% for the year, but the market itself is up 3.9%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. Regrettably, last year's performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 2% per year over five years. Generally speaking long term share price weakness can be a bad sign, though contrarian investors might want to research the stock in hope of a turnaround. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand United Aircraft better, we need to consider many other factors.
