It's easy to feel disappointed if you buy a stock that goes down. But sometimes a share price fall can have more to do with market conditions than the performance of the specific business. Over the year the Conch (Anhui) Energy Saving and Environment Protection New Material Co., Ltd. (SZSE:000619) share price fell 12%. But that actually beats the market decline of 21%. Longer term investors have fared much better, since the share price is up 12% in three years. The last week also saw the share price slip down another 15%. However, this move may have been influenced by the broader market, which fell 6.3% in that time.

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