Intellicheck, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDN) shareholders have seen the share price descend 23% over the month. But over five years returns have been remarkably great. In fact, during that period, the share price climbed 710%. Impressive! So it might be that some shareholders are taking profits after good performance. But the real question is whether the business fundamentals can improve over the long term.
Anyone who held for that rewarding ride would probably be keen to talk about it.
Because Intellicheck made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. 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.
For the last half decade, Intellicheck can boast revenue growth at a rate of 11% per year. That's a fairly respectable growth rate. However, the share price gain of 52% during the period is considerably stronger. It might not be cheap but a (long-term) growth stock like this is usually well worth taking a closer look at.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Intellicheck shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 104% over the last year. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 52% per year), it would seem that the stock's performance has improved in recent times. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. 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.
