A Different Perspective

Radius Health shareholders gained a total return of 43% during the year. Unfortunately this falls short of the market return.

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. Consider for instance, the ever-present spectre of investment risk.
