Can You Imagine How MeiraGTx Holdings's (NASDAQ:MGTX) Shareholders Feel About The 21% Share Price Increase?

Simply Wall St

It hasn't been the best quarter for MeiraGTx Holdings plc (NASDAQ:MGTX) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 28% in that time. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been pleasing. In that time we've seen the stock easily surpass the market return, with a gain of 21%.

Because MeiraGTx Holdings is loss-making, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong 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.
