Cann Group Limited (ASX:CAN) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 15% in the last month. But don't let that distract from the very nice return generated over three years. In the last three years the share price is up, 70%: better than the market.
Given that Cann Group 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. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.
