While some are satisfied with an index fund, active investors aim to find truly magnificent investments on the stock market. When you find (and hold) a big winner, you can markedly improve your finances. For example, Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:LTRP.A) has generated a beautiful 449% return in just a single year. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 70% gain in the last three months. This could be related to the recent financial results, released recently - you can catch up on the most recent data by reading our company report. On the other hand, longer term shareholders have had a tougher run, with the stock falling 43% in three years.

Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.

In the last year Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings saw its revenue shrink by 61%. So it's very confusing to see that the share price gained a whopping 449%. It's pretty clear the market isn't basing its valuation on fundamental metrics like revenue. While this gain looks like speculative buying to us, sometimes speculation pays off.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 449% in the last twelve months. There's no doubt those recent returns are much better than the TSR loss of 11% per year over five years. We generally put more weight on the long term performance over the short term, but the recent improvement could hint at a (positive) inflection point within the business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
