We think that it’s fair to say that the possibility of finding fantastic multi-year winners is what motivates many investors. Not every pick can be a winner, but when you pick the right stock, you can win big. One bright shining star stock has been Gravity Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRVY), which is 3722% higher than three years ago. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 34% gain in the last three months.
Anyone who held for that rewarding ride would probably be keen to talk about it.
While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company’s share price and its earnings per share (EPS).
Gravity 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.
The image below shows how EPS has tracked over time (if you click on the image you can see greater detail).

A Different Perspective
It’s good to see that Gravity has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 47% in the last twelve months. Having said that, the five-year TSR of 72% a year, is even better. Potential buyers might understandably feel they’ve missed the opportunity, but it’s always possible business is still firing on all cylinders.
