The Total Return for Yadea Group Holdings (HKG:1585) Investors Has Risen Faster Than Earnings Growth Over the Last Three Years

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

We think that it's fair to say that the possibility of finding fantastic multi-year winners is what motivates many investors. But when you hold the right stock for the right time period, the rewards can be truly huge. One bright shining star stock has been Yadea Group Holdings Ltd. (HKG:1585), which is 934% higher than three years ago. On top of that, the share price is up 22% in about a quarter. We love happy stories like this one. The company should be really proud of that performance!

While the stock has fallen 3.5% this week, it's worth focusing on the longer term and seeing if the stocks historical returns have been driven by the underlying fundamentals.

Check out our latest analysis for Yadea Group Holdings

While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. 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.

Yadea Group Holdings was able to grow its EPS at 48% per year over three years, sending the share price higher. In comparison, the 118% per year gain in the share price outpaces the EPS growth. This indicates that the market is feeling more optimistic on the stock, after the last few years of progress. It's not unusual to see the market 're-rate' a stock, after a few years of growth.

We like that insiders have been buying shares in the last twelve months. Even so, future earnings will be far more important to whether current shareholders make money.

What About Dividends?

As well as measuring the share price return, investors should also consider the total shareholder return (TSR). Whereas the share price return only reflects the change in the share price, the TSR includes the value of dividends (assuming they were reinvested) and the benefit of any discounted capital raising or spin-off. It's fair to say that the TSR gives a more complete picture for stocks that pay a dividend. We note that for Yadea Group Holdings the TSR over the last 3 years was 975%, which is better than the share price return mentioned above. And there's no prize for guessing that the dividend payments largely explain the divergence!

A Different Perspective

It's nice to see that Yadea Group Holdings shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 9.7% over the last year. Of course, that includes the dividend. However, the TSR over five years, coming in at 53% per year, is even more impressive. The pessimistic view would be that be that the stock has its best days behind it, but on the other hand the price might simply be moderating while the business itself continues to execute. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Yadea Group Holdings better, we need to consider many other factors.
