It might be of some concern to shareholders to see the Ichor Holdings, Ltd. (NASDAQ:ICHR) share price down 12% in the last month. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been very strong. We're very pleased to report the share price shot up 144% in that time. So we think most shareholders won't be too upset about the recent fall. The real question is whether the business is trending in the right direction.
While the efficient markets hypothesis continues to be taught by some, it has been proven that markets are over-reactive dynamic systems, and investors are not always rational. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).
Ichor Holdings was able to grow EPS by 225% in the last twelve months. This EPS growth is significantly higher than the 144% increase in the share price. So it seems like the market has cooled on Ichor Holdings, despite the growth. Interesting.
