It hasn't been the best quarter for Fiore Gold Ltd. (CVE:F) shareholders, since the share price has fallen 18% in that time. On the other hand, over the last twelve months the stock has delivered rather impressive returns. Like an eagle, the share price soared 181% in that time. So it is important to view the recent reduction in price through that lense. The real question is whether the business is trending in the right direction.
While the efficient markets hypothesis continues to be taught by some, it has been proven that markets are over-reactive dynamic systems, and investors are not always rational. 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).
During the last year Fiore Gold saw its earnings per share (EPS) increase strongly. While that particular rate of growth is unlikely to be sustained for long, it is still remarkable. We are not surprised the share price is up. Strong growth like this can be evidence of a fundamental inflection point in the business, making it a good time to investigate the stock more closely.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Fiore Gold shareholders have gained 181% (in total) over the last year. So this year's TSR was actually better than the three-year TSR (annualized) of 19%. Given the track record of solid returns over varying time frames, it might be worth putting Fiore Gold on your watchlist. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too. Like risks, for instance. Every company has them, and we've spotted 4 warning signs for Fiore Gold (of which 1 makes us a bit uncomfortable!) you should know about.
