It is doubtless a positive to see that the CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (NYSE:CORR) share price has gained some 97% in the last three months. But that hardly compensates for the shocking decline over the last twelve months. Specifically, the stock price nose-dived 80% in that time. So the rise may not be much consolation. The real question is whether the company can turn around its fortunes.

A Different Perspective

CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust shareholders are down 79% for the year (even including dividends), but the market itself is up 26%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. Regrettably, last year's performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 0.4% per year over five years. Generally speaking long term share price weakness can be a bad sign, though contrarian investors might want to research the stock in hope of a turnaround. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too.
