While stock picking isn't easy, for those willing to persist and learn, it is possible to buy shares in great companies, and generate wonderful returns. While not every stock performs well, when investors win, they can win big. In the case of Intellia Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTLA), the share price is up an incredible 360% in the last year alone. It's also good to see the share price up 51% over the last quarter. This could be related to the recent financial results, released recently - you can catch up on the most recent data by reading our company report. Looking back further, the stock price is 122% higher than it was three years ago.
Intellia Therapeutics isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.
In the last year Intellia Therapeutics saw its revenue grow by 34%. That's a fairly respectable growth rate. But the market is even more excited about it, with the price apparently bound for the moon, up 360% in one of earth's orbits. While we are always careful about jumping on a hot stock too late, there's certainly good reason to keep an eye on Intellia Therapeutics.
