The Lovesac Company (NASDAQ:LOVE) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 18% in the last month. But looking back over the last year, the returns have actually been rather pleasing! Looking at the full year, the company has easily bested an index fund by gaining 24%.
Given that Lovesac 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 it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.
Lovesac grew its revenue by 62% last year. That's well above most other pre-profit companies. While the share price gain of 24% over twelve months is pretty tasty, you might argue it doesn't fully reflect the strong revenue growth. So quite frankly it could be a good time to investigate Lovesac in some detail. Since we evolved from monkeys, we think in linear terms by nature. So if growth goes exponential, opportunity may exist for the enlightened.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Lovesac shareholders have gained 24% over the last year. A substantial portion of that gain has come in the last three months, with the stock up 5.7% in that time. Demand for the stock from multiple parties is pushing the price higher; it could be that word is getting out about its virtues as a business. Shareholders might want to examine this detailed historical graph of past earnings, revenue and cash flow.
