Investing can be hard but the potential fo an individual stock to pay off big time inspires us. You won't get it right every time, but when you do, the returns can be truly splendid. Take, for example, the Public Joint-Stock Company "Human Stem Cells Institute" (MCX:ISKJ) share price, which skyrocketed 1,049% over three years. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 158% gain in the last three months. We love happy stories like this one. The company should be really proud of that performance!

Since it's been a strong week for Human Stem Cells Institute shareholders, let's have a look at trend of the longer term fundamentals.

Given that Human Stem Cells Institute only made minimal earnings in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue to gauge its business development. Generally speaking, we'd consider a stock like this alongside loss-making companies, simply because the quantum of the profit is so low. For shareholders to have confidence a company will grow profits significantly, it must grow revenue.

Over the last three years Human Stem Cells Institute has grown its revenue at 24% annually. That's much better than most loss-making companies. In light of this attractive revenue growth, it seems somewhat appropriate that the share price has been rocketing, boasting a gain of 126% per year, over the same period. Despite the strong run, top performers like Human Stem Cells Institute have been known to go on winning for decades. So we'd recommend you take a closer look at this one, or even put it on your watchlist.

A Different Perspective

We're pleased to report that Human Stem Cells Institute shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 190% over one year. That's better than the annualised return of 42% over half a decade, implying that the company is doing better recently. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too.
