The simplest way to invest in stocks is to buy exchange traded funds. But if you pick the right individual stocks, you could make more than that. To wit, the eCloudvalley Digital Technology Co., Ltd. (GTSM:6689) share price is 41% higher than it was a year ago, much better than the market return of around 19% (not including dividends) in the same period. If it can keep that out-performance up over the long term, investors will do very well! eCloudvalley Digital Technology hasn't been listed for long, so it's still not clear if it is a long term winner.
To quote Buffett, 'Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace...' 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.
eCloudvalley Digital Technology was able to grow EPS by 2.8% in the last twelve months. This EPS growth is significantly lower than the 41% increase in the share price. So it's fair to assume the market has a higher opinion of the business than it a year ago. The fairly generous P/E ratio of 53.88 also points to this optimism.
