Mobilicom Limited (ASX:MOB) shareholders might understandably be very concerned that the share price has dropped 32% in the last quarter. While that might be a setback, it doesn't negate the nice returns received over the last twelve months. After all, the share price is up a market-beating 21% in that time.

Check out our latest analysis for Mobilicom

Mobilicom isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. 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.

Mobilicom grew its revenue by 74% last year. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. The solid 21% share price gain goes down pretty well, but it's not necessarily as good as you might expect given the top notch revenue growth. So quite frankly it could be a good time to investigate Mobilicom in some detail. Human beings have trouble conceptualizing (and valuing) exponential growth. Is that what we're seeing here?
