Net Insight AB (publ) (STO:NETI B) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 13% in the last week. In contrast, the return over three years has been impressive. In three years the stock price has launched 108% higher: a great result. So the recent fall in the share price should be viewed in that context. The fundamental business performance will ultimately dictate whether the top is in, or if this is a stellar buying opportunity.

In light of the stock dropping 13% in the past week, we want to investigate the longer term story, and see if fundamentals have been the driver of the company's positive three-year return.

While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. One flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.

Net Insight became profitable within the last three years. Given the importance of this milestone, it's not overly surprising that the share price has increased strongly.

A Different Perspective

We're pleased to report that Net Insight shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 42% over one year. Notably the five-year annualised TSR loss of 7% per year compares very unfavourably with the recent share price performance. This makes us a little wary, but the business might have turned around its fortunes. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Net Insight better, we need to consider many other factors. Consider risks, for instance.
