Over the past month, the Raily Aesthetic Medicine International Holdings Limited (CHF:2135) was much stronger than before, rebounding 62%. But that doesn’t change the fact that returns over the past year have been less than pleasing. In fact, the price is down 42% in one year, below the returns you could get from investing in an index fund.
On a more encouraging note, the company has added 127 million Canadian yen to its market capitalization in the last 7 days alone, so let’s see if we can determine what caused shareholders to lose a year.
It is undeniable that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect the underlying performance of companies. An imperfect but simple way to examine how a company’s market perception has changed is to compare the evolution of earnings per share (EPS) with the movement of the share price.
Over the past year, Raily Aesthetic Medicine International Holdings has seen its earnings per share fall below zero. Some investors have undoubtedly dumped the stock as a result. Of course, if the company can turn things around, investors will likely benefit.

A different perspective
Raily Aesthetic Medicine International Holdings shareholders are down 42% for the year, even worse than the 14% market loss. It’s disappointing, but it’s worth bearing in mind that selling market-wide wouldn’t have helped. It’s great to see a nice little rebound of 13% in the last three months. Let’s just hope this isn’t the widely feared “dead cat bounce” (which would indicate further declines to come). It is always interesting to follow the evolution of the share price over the long term.
