One simple way to benefit from the stock market is to buy an index fund. But if you buy good businesses at attractive prices, your portfolio returns could exceed the average market return. For example, the Formula One Group (NASDAQ:FWON.K) share price is up 86% in the last three years, clearly besting than the market return of around 30% (not including dividends). However, more recent returns haven’t been as impressive as that, with the stock returning just 9.7% in the last year.
Given that Formula One Group 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. When a company doesn’t make profits, we’d generally expect to see good revenue growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
