Update: VEEM (ASX:VEE) Stock Gained 70% In The Last Year

·3 min read

If you want to compound wealth in the stock market, you can do so by buying an index fund. But if you pick the right individual stocks, you could make more than that. For example, the VEEM Ltd (ASX:VEE) share price is up 70% in the last year, clearly besting the market return of around 0.1% (not including dividends). If it can keep that out-performance up over the long term, investors will do very well! And shareholders have also done well over the long term, with an increase of 57% in the last three years.

In his essay The Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville Warren Buffett described how share prices do not always rationally reflect the value of a business. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).

During the last year, VEEM actually saw its earnings per share drop 3.2%.

We don't think that the decline in earnings per share is a good measure of the business over the last twelve months. It makes sense to check some of the other fundamental data for an explanation of the share price rise.

We doubt the modest 0.5% dividend yield is doing much to support the share price. Revenue was pretty flat year on year, but maybe a closer look at the data can explain the market optimism.

A Different Perspective

Pleasingly, VEEM's total shareholder return last year was 72%. That's including the dividend. So this year's TSR was actually better than the three-year TSR (annualized) of 17%. 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. Consider for instance, the ever-present spectre of investment risk. We've identified 3 warning signs with VEEM , and understanding them should be part of your investment process.
