The past five years for SPI Energy (NASDAQ:SPI) investors has not been profitable

Over the last month the SPI Energy Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ:SPI) has been much stronger than before, rebounding by 52%. But spare a thought for the long term holders, who have held the stock as it bled value over the last five years. Five years have seen the share price descend precipitously, down a full 79%. So we don't gain too much confidence from the recent recovery. The fundamental business performance will ultimately determine if the turnaround can be sustained.

So let's have a look and see if the longer term performance of the company has been in line with the underlying business' progress.

See our latest analysis for SPI Energy

SPI Energy wasn't profitable in the last twelve months, it is unlikely we'll see a strong correlation between its share price and its earnings per share (EPS). Arguably revenue is our next best option. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

In the last half decade, SPI Energy saw its revenue increase by 8.3% per year. That's a pretty good rate for a long time period. So it is unexpected to see the stock down 12% per year in the last five years. The truth is that the growth might be below expectations, and investors are probably worried about the continual losses.

The image below shows how earnings and revenue have tracked over time (if you click on the image you can see greater detail).

If you are thinking of buying or selling SPI Energy stock, you should check out this FREE detailed report on its balance sheet.

A Different Perspective

We regret to report that SPI Energy shareholders are down 50% for the year. Unfortunately, that's worse than the broader market decline of 9.4%. Having said that, it's inevitable that some stocks will be oversold in a falling market. The key is to keep your eyes on the fundamental developments. Regrettably, last year's performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 12% per year over five years. We realise that Baron Rothschild has said investors should "buy when there is blood on the streets", but we caution that investors should first be sure they are buying a high quality business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. For example, we've discovered 3 warning signs for SPI Energy that you should be aware of before investing here.

We will like SPI Energy better if we see some big insider buys. While we wait, check out this free list of growing companies with considerable, recent, insider buying.
