The worst result, after buying shares in a company (assuming no leverage), would be if you lose all the money you put in. But on a lighter note, a good company can see its share price rise well over 100%. For instance, the price of Full House Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLL) stock is up an impressive 114% over the last five years. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 57% gain in the last three months. The company reported its financial results recently; you can catch up on the latest numbers by reading our company report.
Full House Resorts isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. 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.
For the last half decade, Full House Resorts can boast revenue growth at a rate of 3.1% per year. That's not a very high growth rate considering the bottom line. In comparison, the share price rise of 16% per year over the last half a decade is pretty impressive. Shareholders should be pretty happy with that, although interested investors might want to examine the financial data more closely to see if the gains are really justified. Some might suggest that the sentiment around the stock is rather positive.

A Different Perspective
Full House Resorts shareholders are up 6.2% for the year. But that return falls short of the market. On the bright side, the longer term returns (running at about 16% 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 Full House Resorts better, we need to consider many other factors. To that end, you should be aware of the 3 warning signs we've spotted with Full House Resorts .
