It's easy to match the overall market return by buying an index fund. While individual stocks can be big winners, plenty more fail to generate satisfactory returns. Investors in Glory Star New Media Group Holdings Limited (NASDAQ:GSMG) have tasted that bitter downside in the last year, as the share price dropped 34%. That's disappointing when you consider the market returned 35%. We wouldn't rush to judgement on Glory Star New Media Group Holdings because we don't have a long term history to look at. Furthermore, it's down 30% in about a quarter. That's not much fun for holders.

Since shareholders are down over the longer term, lets look at the underlying fundamentals over the that time and see if they've been consistent with returns.

There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

Unhappily, Glory Star New Media Group Holdings had to report a 13% decline in EPS over the last year. This reduction in EPS is not as bad as the 34% share price fall. This suggests the EPS fall has made some shareholders are more nervous about the business. The P/E ratio of 3.30 also points to the negative market sentiment.

A Different Perspective

While Glory Star New Media Group Holdings shareholders are down 34% for the year, the market itself is up 35%. However, keep in mind that even the best stocks will sometimes underperform the market over a twelve month period. The share price decline has continued throughout the most recent three months, down 30%, suggesting an absence of enthusiasm from investors. Basically, most investors should be wary of buying into a poor-performing stock, unless the business itself has clearly improved. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Glory Star New Media Group Holdings better, we need to consider many other factors.
