The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don't use leverage) is 100% of your money. But if you buy shares in a really great company, you can more than double your money. For instance the Neonode Inc. (NASDAQ:NEON) share price is 290% higher than it was three years ago. That sort of return is as solid as granite. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 77% gain in the last three months.
On the back of a solid 7-day performance, let's check what role the company's fundamentals have played in driving long term shareholder returns.
Neonode 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. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
Neonode actually saw its revenue drop by 17% per year over three years. So we wouldn't have expected the share price to gain 57% per year, but it has. It's fair to say shareholders are definitely counting on a bright future.

A Different Perspective
Neonode provided a TSR of 19% over the last twelve months. But that was short of the market average. But at least that's still a gain! Over five years the TSR has been a reduction of 3% per year, over five years. So this might be a sign the business has turned its fortunes around. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Neonode better, we need to consider many other factors.
