It hasn't been the best quarter for Intrinsyc Technologies Corporation (TSE:ITC) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 19% in that time. On the bright side the returns have been quite good over the last half decade. Its return of 35% has certainly bested the market return!
Because Intrinsyc Technologies 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. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
In the last 5 years Intrinsyc Technologies saw its revenue grow at 24% per year. Even measured against other revenue-focussed companies, that's a good result. It's good to see that the stock has 6.2%, but not entirely surprising given revenue shows strong growth. If the strong revenue growth continues, we'd expect the share price to follow, in time. Opportunity lies where the market hasn't fully priced growth in the underlying business.

A Different Perspective
Intrinsyc Technologies shareholders are down 25% for the year, but the market itself is up 1.3%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. On the bright side, long term shareholders have made money, with a gain of 6.2% per year over half a decade. If the fundamental data continues to indicate long term sustainable growth, the current sell-off could be an opportunity worth considering.
