If you are building a properly diversified stock portfolio, the chances are some of your picks will perform badly. But the long term shareholders of Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ:RESN) have had an unfortunate run in the last three years. Regrettably, they have had to cope with a 69% drop in the share price over that period. On the other hand the share price has bounced 6.5% over the last week.

Because Resonant 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. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Over three years, Resonant grew revenue at 53% per year. That is faster than most pre-profit companies. The share price has moved in quite the opposite direction, down 19% over that time, a bad result. It seems likely that the market is worried about the continual losses. But a share price drop of that magnitude could well signal that the market is overly negative on the stock.

A Different Perspective

Resonant provided a TSR of 14% over the last twelve months. Unfortunately this falls short of the market return. But at least that's still a gain! Over five years the TSR has been a reduction of 2% per year, over five years. So this might be a sign the business has turned its fortunes around. 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. We've identified 4 warning signs with Resonant (at least 2 which shouldn't be ignored) , and understanding them should be part of your investment process.
