The most you can lose on any stock (assuming you don't use leverage) is 100% of your money. But if you pick the right business to buy shares in, you can make more than you can lose. For example, the Integrated Media Technology Limited (NASDAQ:IMTE) share price has soared 171% in the last year. Most would be very happy with that, especially in just one year! It's also good to see the share price up 115% over the last quarter. Also impressive, the stock is up 149% over three years, making long term shareholders happy, too.
Given that Integrated Media Technology 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.
Over the last twelve months, Integrated Media Technology's revenue grew by 196%. That's stonking growth even when compared to other loss-making stocks. And the share price has responded, gaining 171% as we previously mentioned. That sort of revenue growth is bound to attract attention, even if the company doesn't turn a profit. The strong share price rise indicates optimism, so there may be a better opportunity for buyers as the hype fades a bit.

A Different Perspective
Pleasingly, Integrated Media Technology's total shareholder return last year was 171%. So this year's TSR was actually better than the three-year TSR (annualized) of 35%. These improved returns may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. Like risks, for instance.
