Investors might be losing patience for Phreesia's (NYSE:PHR) increasing losses, as stock sheds 6.4% over the past week
Phreesia, Inc. (NYSE:PHR) shareholders have seen the share price descend 11% over the month. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last three years have been respectable. In fact the stock is up 69%, which is better than the market return of 63%.
In light of the stock dropping 6.4% in the past week, we want to investigate the longer term story, and see if fundamentals have been the driver of the company's positive three-year return.

Because Phreesia made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability to grow revenue faster, but in that case one does expect good top-line growth.
In the last 3 years Phreesia saw its revenue grow at 29% per year. That's much better than most loss-making companies. While the compound gain of 19% per year over three years is pretty good, you might argue it doesn't fully reflect the strong revenue growth. So now might be the perfect time to put Phreesia on your radar. If the company is trending towards profitability then it could be very interesting.
