Emyria's (ASX:EMD) investors will be pleased with their favorable 69% return over the last year
Emyria Limited (ASX:EMD) shareholders might understandably be very concerned that the share price has dropped 32% in the last quarter. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been pleasing. In that time we've seen the stock easily surpass the market return, with a gain of 69%.
Let's take a look at the underlying fundamentals over the longer term, and see if they've been consistent with shareholders returns.

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. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
In the last year Emyria saw its revenue shrink by 6.7%. The stock is up 69% in that time, a fine performance given the revenue drop. We can correlate the share price rise with revenue or profit growth, but it seems the market had previously expected weaker results, and sentiment around the stock is improving.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Emyria shareholders have gained 69% over the last year. We regret to report that the share price is down 32% over ninety days. Shorter term share price moves often don't signify much about the business itself. 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.
