It might be of some concern to shareholders to see the Maverix Metals Inc. (TSE:MMX) share price down 13% in the last month. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last three years have been pleasing. In fact, the company's share price bested the return of its market index in that time, posting a gain of 87%.

Maverix Metals 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. 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.

Maverix Metals' revenue trended up 40% each year over three years. That's well above most pre-profit companies. The share price rise of 23% per year throughout that time is nice to see, and given the revenue growth, that gain seems somewhat justified. So now might be the perfect time to put Maverix Metals on your radar. A window of opportunity may reveal itself with time, if the business can trend to profitability.
