The worst result, after buying shares in a company (assuming no leverage), would be if you lose all the money you put in. But when you pick a company that is really flourishing, you can make more than 100%. One great example is OneSoft Solutions Inc. (CVE:OSS) which saw its share price drive 180% higher over five years. In more good news, the share price has risen 29% in thirty days. This could be related to the recent financial results that were recently released - you could check the most recent data by reading our company report.
After a strong gain in the past week, it's worth seeing if longer term returns have been driven by improving fundamentals.
OneSoft Solutions isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. 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.
In the last 5 years OneSoft Solutions saw its revenue grow at 39% per year. Even measured against other revenue-focussed companies, that's a good result. So it's not entirely surprising that the share price reflected this performance by increasing at a rate of 23% per year, in that time. So it seems likely that buyers have paid attention to the strong revenue growth. OneSoft Solutions seems like a high growth stock - so growth investors might want to add it to their watchlist.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that OneSoft Solutions shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 35% over the last year. That's better than the annualised return of 23% over half a decade, implying that the company is doing better recently. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand OneSoft Solutions better, we need to consider many other factors.
