Positive earnings growth hasn't been enough to get Strawbear Entertainment Group (HKG:2125) shareholders a favorable return over the last year

Simply Wall St ·  05/01 09:15

This week we saw the Strawbear Entertainment Group (HKG:2125) share price climb by 16%. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been disappointing. Specifically, the stock price slipped by 70% in that time. The share price recovery is not so impressive when you consider the fall. You could argue that the sell-off was too severe.

While the stock has risen 16% in the past week but long term shareholders are still in the red, let's see what the fundamentals can tell us.

To quote Buffett, 'Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace...' One flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.

Strawbear Entertainment Group stole the show with its EPS rocketing, in the last year. We don't think the growth guide to the sustainable growth rate in this case, but we do think this sort of increase is impressive. As a result, we're surprised to see the weak share price. So it's worth taking a look at some other metrics.

Strawbear Entertainment Group's revenue is actually up 79% over the last year. Since we can't easily explain the share price movement based on these metrics, it might be worth considering how market sentiment has changed towards the stock.

A Different Perspective

We doubt Strawbear Entertainment Group shareholders are happy with the loss of 70% over twelve months. That falls short of the market, which lost 21%. That's disappointing, but it's worth keeping in mind that the market-wide selling wouldn't have helped. With the stock down 20% over the last three months, the market doesn't seem to believe that the company has solved all its problems. Basically, most investors should be wary of buying into a poor-performing stock, unless the business itself has clearly improved. 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.
