1933 Industries Inc. (CNSX:TGIF) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 20% in the last quarter. But that doesn't displace its brilliant performance over three years. Indeed, the share price is up a whopping 800% in that time. So you might argue that the recent reduction in the share price is unremarkable in light of the longer term performance. The share price action could signify that the business itself is dramatically improved, in that time.
It really delights us to see such great share price performance for investors.
Because 1933 Industries is loss-making, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now.
