Select Interior Concepts, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIC) shareholders have seen the share price descend 13% over the month. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been very strong. Like an eagle, the share price soared 162% in that time. So we think most shareholders won't be too upset about the recent fall. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.
Select Interior Concepts 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. Shareholders of unprofitable companies usually expect strong revenue growth. That's because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.
In the last year Select Interior Concepts saw its revenue shrink by 8.3%. So we would not have expected the share price to rise 162%. It just goes to show the market doesn't always pay attention to the reported numbers. Of course, it could be that the market expected this revenue drop.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Select Interior Concepts shareholders have gained 162% over the last year. That's better than the more recent three month gain of 22%, implying that share price has plateaued recently. It seems likely the market is waiting on fundamental developments with the business before pushing the share price higher (or lower). 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.
