OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (NASDAQ:OSW) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 19% in the last quarter. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been less than pleasing. After all, the share price is down 40% in the last year, significantly under-performing the market.

Because OneSpaWorld Holdings made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. 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.

In just one year OneSpaWorld Holdings saw its revenue fall by 54%. That looks like a train-wreck result to investors far and wide. Meanwhile, the share price dropped by 40%. It's always work digging deeper, but we'd probably need to see a strong balance sheet and bottom line improvements to get interested in this one.

We consider it positive that insiders have made significant purchases in the last year. Having said that, most people consider earnings and revenue growth trends to be a more meaningful guide to the business. So we recommend checking out this free report showing consensus forecasts

A Different Perspective

Given that the market gained 27% in the last year, OneSpaWorld Holdings shareholders might be miffed that they lost 40% (even including dividends). While the aim is to do better than that, it's worth recalling that even great long-term investments sometimes underperform for a year or more. It's great to see a nice little 19% rebound in the last three months. Let's just hope this isn't the widely-feared 'dead cat bounce' (which would indicate further declines to come). It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand OneSpaWorld Holdings better, we need to consider many other factors. Consider risks, for instance.
