It might be of some concern to shareholders to see the Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (NASDAQ:AOSL) share price down 11% in the last month. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been very strong. We're very pleased to report the share price shot up 275% in that time. So it is important to view the recent reduction in price through that lense. The real question is whether the business is trending in the right direction.
There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.
During the last year Alpha and Omega Semiconductor grew its earnings per share, moving from a loss to a profit.
When a company has just transitioned to profitability, earnings per share growth is not always the best way to look at the share price action.

A Different Perspective
It's good to see that Alpha and Omega Semiconductor has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 275% in the last twelve months. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 20% per year), it would seem that the stock's performance has improved in recent times. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. 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.
