DSP Group (NASDAQ:DSPG) Shareholders Booked A 56% Gain In The Last Five Years

Simply Wall St
·3 min read

The main point of investing for the long term is to make money. But more than that, you probably want to see it rise more than the market average. Unfortunately for shareholders, while the DSP Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:DSPG) share price is up 56% in the last five years, that's less than the market return. Zooming in, the stock is up just 3.8% in the last year.

View our latest analysis for DSP Group

DSP Group wasn't profitable in the last twelve months, it is unlikely we'll see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS). Arguably revenue is our next best option. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Over the last half decade DSP Group's revenue has actually been trending down at about 5.2% per year. The falling revenue is arguably somewhat reflected in the lacklustre return of 9% per year over that time. That's pretty decent given the top line decline, and lack of profits. We'd keep an eye on changes in the trend - there may be an opportunity if the company returns to growth.

A Different Perspective

DSP Group shareholders are up 3.8% for the year. But that return falls short of the market. On the bright side, the longer term returns (running at about 9% a year, over half a decade) look better. Maybe the share price is just taking a breather while the business executes on its growth strategy. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand DSP Group better, we need to consider many other factors. Consider risks, for instance. Every company has them, and we've spotted 1 warning sign for DSP Group you should know about.
