It might seem bad, but the worst that can happen when you buy a stock (without leverage) is that its share price goes to zero. But if you buy shares in a really great company, you can more than double your money. For example, the Anterix Inc. (NASDAQ:ATEX) share price has soared 117% in the last three years. Most would be happy with that. In the last week shares have slid back 2.9%.

Given that Anterix didn’t make a profit in the last twelve months, we’ll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That’s because it’s hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.
In the last 3 years Anterix saw its revenue shrink by 4.8% per year. So the share price gain of 30% per year is quite surprising. It’s fair to say shareholders are definitely counting on a bright future.

We’re pleased to report that the CEO is remunerated more modestly than most CEOs at similarly capitalized companies.

A Different Perspective
It’s nice to see that Anterix shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 25% over the last year. Since the one-year TSR is better than the five-year TSR (the latter coming in at 2.1% per year), it would seem that the stock’s performance has improved in recent times. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve deeper. It’s always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Anterix better, we need to consider many other factors.
