Raketech Group Holding PLC (STO:RAKE) shareholders have seen the share price descend 14% over the month. But at least the stock is up over the last three years. Arguably you'd have been better off buying an index fund, because the gain of 21% in three years isn't amazing.

After a strong gain in the past week, it's worth seeing if longer term returns have been driven by improving fundamentals.

To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: Over the short term the market is a voting machine, but over the long term it's a weighing machine. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

Over the last three years, Raketech Group Holding failed to grow earnings per share, which fell 6.7% (annualized).

Thus, it seems unlikely that the market is focussed on EPS growth at the moment. Given this situation, it makes sense to look at other metrics too.

It may well be that Raketech Group Holding revenue growth rate of 17% over three years has convinced shareholders to believe in a brighter future. If the company is being managed for the long term good, today's shareholders might be right to hold on.
