Vesync (HKG:2148) stock falls 6.4% in past week as one-year earnings and shareholder returns continue downward trend

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

While it may not be enough for some shareholders, we think it is good to see the Vesync Co., Ltd (HKG:2148) share price up 29% in a single quarter. But that is minimal compensation for the share price under-performance over the last year. In fact the stock is down 48% in the last year, well below the market return.

Given the past week has been tough on shareholders, let's investigate the fundamentals and see what we can learn.

Check out our latest analysis for Vesync

While the efficient markets hypothesis continues to be taught by some, it has been proven that markets are over-reactive dynamic systems, and investors are not always rational. By comparing earnings per share ( EPS ) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

Unfortunately Vesync reported an EPS drop of 46% for the last year. This proportional reduction in earnings per share isn't far from the 48% decrease in the share price. Therefore one could posit that the market has not become more concerned about the company, despite the lower EPS. Rather, the share price has approximately tracked EPS growth.

It's good to see that there was some significant insider buying in the last three months. That's a positive. That said, we think earnings and revenue growth trends are even more important factors to consider.

A Different Perspective

We doubt Vesync shareholders are happy with the loss of 47% over twelve months (even including dividends). That falls short of the market, which lost 20%. There's no doubt that's a disappointment, but the stock may well have fared better in a stronger market. It's great to see a nice little 29% rebound in the last three months. Let's just hope this isn't the widely-feared 'dead cat bounce' (which would indicate further declines to come). It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Vesync better, we need to consider many other factors.
