Basis for the contraction

The past can be a helpful indicator for future performance for a stock. We can determine whether this level of expected growth is unwarranted or whether the negative outlook is too harsh. SRDX’s earnings growth of -61.14% last year exhibits a continuation of large negative growth, which is worrisome. As a small-cap company, SRDX could be in the stage of growth and high investment, meaning expenses will exceed revenues, leading to a sustained negative growth period.
