Investing can be hard but the potential fo an individual stock to pay off big time inspires us. Mistakes are inevitable, but a single top stock pick can cover any losses, and so much more. One bright shining star stock has been Arcimoto, Inc. (NASDAQ:FUV), which is 342% higher than three years ago. Also pleasing for shareholders was the 59% gain in the last three months.
Given that Arcimoto 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. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.
Arcimoto's revenue trended up 102% each year over three years. That's much better than most loss-making companies. In light of this attractive revenue growth, it seems somewhat appropriate that the share price has been rocketing, boasting a gain of 64% per year, over the same period. It's always tempting to take profits after a share price gain like that, but high-growth companies like Arcimoto can sometimes sustain strong growth for many years. In fact, it might be time to put it on your watchlist, if you're not already familiar with the stock.

A Different Perspective
We're pleased to report that Arcimoto rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 193% over the last year. That's better than the annualized TSR of 64% over the last three years. 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.
