Simply Wall St

It hasn't been the best quarter for Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRHC) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 16% in that time. But that doesn't change the reality that over twelve months the stock has done really well. In that time we've seen the stock easily surpass the market return, with a gain of 29%.

Tabula Rasa HealthCare isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Tabula Rasa HealthCare grew its revenue by 53% last year. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. While the share price gain of 29% over twelve months is pretty tasty, you might argue it doesn't fully reflect the strong revenue growth. So quite frankly it could be a good time to investigate Tabula Rasa HealthCare in some detail. Since we evolved from monkeys, we think in linear terms by nature. So if growth goes exponential, opportunity may exist for the enlightened.
