Given that Misonix 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. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Over the last three years Misonix has grown its revenue at 21% annually. That's much better than most loss-making companies. And it's not just the revenue that is taking off. The share price is up 67% per year in that time. It's always tempting to take profits after a share price gain like that, but high-growth companies like Misonix can sometimes sustain strong growth for many years. So we'd recommend you take a closer look at this one, or even put it on your watchlist.
