Airgain, Inc. (NASDAQ:AIRG) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 16% in the last month. On the other hand, over the last twelve months the stock has delivered rather impressive returns. Like an eagle, the share price soared 281% in that time. So some might not be surprised to see the price retrace some. Investors should be wondering whether the business itself has the fundamental value required to continue to drive gains.

Check out our latest analysis for Airgain

Given that Airgain didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Airgain actually shrunk its revenue over the last year, with a reduction of 13%. So we would not have expected the share price to rise 281%. This is a good example of how buyers can push up prices even before the fundamental metrics show much growth. Of course, it could be that the market expected this revenue drop.

It's good to see that there was some significant insider buying in the last three months. That's a positive. On the other hand, we think the revenue and earnings trends are much more meaningful measures of the business. So it makes a lot of sense to check out what analysts think Airgain will earn in the future (free profit forecasts).

A Different Perspective

We're pleased to report that Airgain rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 281% over the last year. That's better than the annualized TSR of 40% over the last three years. These improved returns may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
