Risanamento’s (BIT: RN) Wonderful 460% Share Price Increase Shows How Capitalism Can Create Wealth
Investing can be difficult, but we are inspired by the potential of an individual action to pay off. But when you hold the right stock for the right time, the rewards can be really huge. Take, for example, the Risanamento SpA (BIT: RN), which has climbed 460% in three years. On top of that, the share price rose 130% in about a quarter.

Risanamento has not been profitable over the past twelve months, we are unlikely to see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS). Income is arguably our best option. Generally speaking, companies with no profits are expected to increase their income every year, and at a good rate. This is because it is difficult to be sure that a business will be sustainable if the revenue growth is negligible and it never makes a profit.
Over the past 3 years, Risanamento has seen its turnover increase by 16% per year. It’s a very respectable growth rate. Some shareholders might think that the share price rise of 78% per year is a happy result, given the level of revenue growth. A hot stock like this is usually worth a closer look, as long as you don’t let Fear of Running Out (FOMO) affect your thinking.

A different perspective
It is nice to see that Risanamento shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 160% over the past year. This is better than the 13% annualized return over half a decade, which implies that the company has been doing better recently. At the best of times, this can portend real business momentum, implying that now may be a good time to dig deep. I find it very interesting to look at the long-term share price as an indicator of company performance. But to really get an overview, we have to take other information into account as well. Like risks, for example. Every business has them, and we’ve spotted 3 warning signs for Risanamento (1 of which is a bit disturbing!) that you should know about.
