Team17 Group PLC (LON:TM17) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 14% in the last week. Despite this, the stock is a strong performer over the last year, no doubt about that. Indeed, the share price is up an impressive 117% in that time. So we think most shareholders won't be too upset about the recent fall. The real question is whether the business is trending in the right direction.
While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. 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 Team17 Group grew its earnings per share (EPS) by 111%. We note that the earnings per share growth isn't far from the share price growth (of 117%). This makes us think the market hasn't really changed its sentiment around the company, in the last year. It makes intuitive sense that the share price and EPS would grow at similar rates.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Team17 Group shareholders have gained 117% over the last year. And the share price momentum remains respectable, with a gain of 32% in the last three months. This suggests the company is continuing to win over new investors. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance.
