Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

Passive investing in an index fund is a good way to ensure your own returns roughly match the overall market. Active investors aim to buy stocks that vastly outperform the market - but in the process, they risk under-performance. For example, the Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (SHSE:688670) share price is down 49% in the last year. That's disappointing when you consider the market declined 13%. Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology hasn't been listed for long, so although we're wary of recent listings that perform poorly, it may still prove itself with time. The falls have accelerated recently, with the share price down 14% in the last three months.

Since Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology has shed CN¥379m from its value in the past 7 days, let's see if the longer term decline has been driven by the business' economics.

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.

Unhappily, Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology had to report a 45% decline in EPS over the last year. We note that the 49% share price drop is very close to the EPS drop. Given the lower EPS we might have expected investors to lose confidence in the stock, but that doesn't seemed to have happened. Rather, the share price is remains a similar multiple of the EPS, suggesting the outlook remains the same.

A Different Perspective

We doubt Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology shareholders are happy with the loss of 48% over twelve months (even including dividends). That falls short of the market, which lost 13%. There's no doubt that's a disappointment, but the stock may well have fared better in a stronger market. The share price decline has continued throughout the most recent three months, down 14%, suggesting an absence of enthusiasm from investors. Basically, most investors should be wary of buying into a poor-performing stock, unless the business itself has clearly improved. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Jiangsu gdk Biotechnology better, we need to consider many other factors.
