For many, the main point of investing in the stock market is to achieve spectacular returns. When you find (and hold) a big winner, you can markedly improve your finances. For example, the The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. (NASDAQ:STKS) share price rocketed moonwards 423% in just one year. In the last week shares have slid back 2.8%. Looking back further, the stock price is 203% higher than it was three years ago.
Now it's worth having a look at the company's fundamentals too, because that will help us determine if the long term shareholder return has matched the performance of the underlying business.
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).
ONE Group Hospitality went from making a loss to reporting a profit, in the last year.
When a company has just transitioned to profitability, earnings per share growth is not always the best way to look at the share price action.
We think that the revenue growth of 56% could have some investors interested. We do see some companies suppress earnings in order to accelerate revenue growth.

A Different Perspective
It's good to see that ONE Group Hospitality has rewarded shareholders with a total shareholder return of 423% in the last twelve months. That's better than the annualised return of 34% 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 ONE Group Hospitality better, we need to consider many other factors.
