Buying shares in the best businesses can build meaningful wealth for you and your family. While not every stock performs well, when investors win, they can win big. To wit, the TAS Tecnologia Avanzata dei Sistemi S.p.A. (BIT:TAS) share price has soared 968% over five years. This just goes to show the value creation that some businesses can achieve. The last week saw the share price soften some 2.3%.
It really delights us to see such great share price performance for investors.
Given that TAS Tecnologia Avanzata dei Sistemi only made minimal earnings in the last twelve months, we’ll focus on revenue to gauge its business development. As a general rule, we think this kind of company is more comparable to loss-making stocks, since the actual profit is so low. It would be hard to believe in a more profitable future without growing revenues.
For the last half decade, TAS Tecnologia Avanzata dei Sistemi can boast revenue growth at a rate of 3.8% per year. That’s not a very high growth rate considering the bottom line. So shareholders should be pretty elated with the 61% increase per year, in that time. We’ll tip our hats to that, any day, but the top-line growth isn’t particularly impressive when you compare it to other pre-profit companies. Having said that, a closer look at the numbers might surface good reasons to believe that profits will gush in the future.

A Different Perspective
TAS Tecnologia Avanzata dei Sistemi provided a TSR of 15% over the last twelve months. But that return falls short of the market. On the bright side, the longer term returns (running at about 61% a year, over half a decade) look better. It’s quite possible the business continues to execute with prowess, even as the share price gains are slowing.
