Aquis Exchange's(LON:AQX) Share Price Is Down 23% Over The Past Year.

Simply Wall St

Aquis Exchange PLC (LON:AQX) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 11% in the last week. But that is minimal compensation for the share price under-performance over the last year. The cold reality is that the stock has dropped 23% in one year, under-performing the market.

Given that Aquis Exchange 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.

In the last twelve months, Aquis Exchange increased its revenue by 36%. That's definitely a respectable growth rate. Unfortunately that wasn't good enough to stop the share price dropping 23%. You might even wonder if the share price was previously over-hyped. But if revenue keeps growing, then at a certain point the share price would likely follow.

A Different Perspective

We doubt Aquis Exchange shareholders are happy with the loss of 23% over twelve months. That falls short of the market, which lost 11%. That's disappointing, but it's worth keeping in mind that the market-wide selling wouldn't have helped. Putting aside the last twelve months, it's good to see the share price has rebounded by 4.3%, in the last ninety days. This could just be a bounce because the selling was too aggressive, but fingers crossed it's the start of a new trend. Most investors take the time to check the data on insider transactions.
