Has Billion Industrial Holdings Limited Been A Good Investment?

Billion Industrial Holdings Limited has generated a total shareholder return of 2.1% over three years, so most shareholders wouldn't be too disappointed. But they probably don't want to see the CEO paid more than is normal for companies around the same size.

In Summary...

It looks like Billion Industrial Holdings Limited pays its CEO less than similar sized companies.

Many would consider this to indicate that the pay is modest since the business is growing. While returns over the last few years haven't been top notch, there is nothing to suggest to us that Jinbiao Wu is overcompensated. Few would complain about reasonable CEO remuneration when the business is growing earnings per share. But for me, it's even better if insiders are also buying shares with their own cold, hard, cash.
