The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don't use leverage) is 100% of your money. But if you pick the right business to buy shares in, you can make more than you can lose. Take, for example Eden Research plc (LON:EDEN). Its share price is already up an impressive 127% in the last twelve months. Better yet, the share price has gained 156% in the last quarter. Looking back further, the stock price is 118% higher than it was three years ago.

View our latest analysis for Eden Research

Given that Eden Research didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.

Eden Research actually shrunk its revenue over the last year, with a reduction of 17%. So we would not have expected the share price to rise 127%. It just goes to show the market doesn't always pay attention to the reported numbers. It's quite likely the revenue fall was already priced in, anyway.

The image below shows how earnings and revenue have tracked over time (if you click on the image you can see greater detail).

A Different Perspective

We're pleased to report that Eden Research shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 127% over one year. That gain is better than the annual TSR over five years, which is 6%. Therefore it seems like sentiment around the company has been positive lately. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. For instance, we've identified 3 warning signs for Eden Research (1 makes us a bit uncomfortable) that you should be aware of.
