The Five-year Loss for Bohai Water IndustryLtd (SZSE:000605) Shareholders Likely Driven by Its Shrinking Earnings

Simply Wall St ·  08/20 10:35

Bohai Water Industry Co.,Ltd (SZSE:000605) shareholders will doubtless be very grateful to see the share price up 31% in the last quarter. But that can't change the reality that over the longer term (five years), the returns have been really quite dismal. In fact, the share price has declined rather badly, down some 58% in that time. Some might say the recent bounce is to be expected after such a bad drop. Of course, this could be the start of a turnaround.

The recent uptick of 22% could be a positive sign of things to come, so let's take a lot at historical fundamentals.

View our latest analysis for Bohai Water IndustryLtd

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. One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.

Looking back five years, both Bohai Water IndustryLtd's share price and EPS declined; the latter at a rate of 30% per year. The share price decline of 16% per year isn't as bad as the EPS decline. So investors might expect EPS to bounce back -- or they may have previously foreseen the EPS decline. With a P/E ratio of 309.64, it's fair to say the market sees a brighter future for the business.

A Different Perspective

It's good to see that Bohai Water IndustryLtd has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 57% in the last twelve months. Of course, that includes the dividend. That certainly beats the loss of about 9% per year over the last half decade. We generally put more weight on the long term performance over the short term, but the recent improvement could hint at a (positive) inflection point within the business. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Bohai Water IndustryLtd better, we need to consider many other factors.
