Ling Yui Holdings Limited (HKG:784) shareholders might understandably be very concerned that the share price has dropped 56% in the last quarter. On the other hand, over the last twelve months the stock has delivered rather impressive returns. Indeed, the share price is up an impressive 222% in that time. So we think most shareholders won't be too upset about the recent fall. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.
Ling Yui Holdings isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
In the last year Ling Yui Holdings saw its revenue grow by 34%. That's a fairly respectable growth rate. The revenue growth is decent but the share price had an even better year, gaining 222%. If the profitability is on the horizon then now could be a very exciting time to be a shareholder. Of course, we are always cautious about succumbing to 'fear of missing out' when a stock has shot up strongly.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Ling Yui Holdings shareholders have gained 222% over the last year. We regret to report that the share price is down 56% over ninety days. Shorter term share price moves often don't signify much about the business itself. 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.
