Unless you borrow money to invest, the potential losses are limited. But if you pick the right business to buy shares in, you can make more than you can lose. For example, the Emyria Limited (ASX:EMD) share price had more than doubled in just one year - up 257%. On top of that, the share price is up 79% in about a quarter. Note that businesses generally develop over the long term, so the returns over the last year might not reflect a long term trend.

Check out our latest analysis for Emyria

Emyria wasn't profitable in the last twelve months, it is unlikely we'll see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS). Arguably revenue is our next best option. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. 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.

Emyria grew its revenue by 218% last year. That's well above most other pre-profit companies. And the share price has responded, gaining 257% as we previously mentioned. It's great to see strong revenue growth, but the question is whether it can be sustained. 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

Emyria boasts a total shareholder return of 257% for the last year. A substantial portion of that gain has come in the last three months, with the stock up 79% in that time. This suggests the company is continuing to win over new investors. 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.
