Tibet Water Resources (HKG: 1115) stock fell 11% last week as five-year earnings and shareholder returns continue their downward trend


We are definitely into long term investing, but some companies are just plain bad investments all the time. We do not wish anyone a catastrophic capital loss. For example, we sympathize with anyone who has been caught holding Tibet Water Resources Ltd. (HKG: 1115) in the five years that have seen its share price drop 83%. Shareholders have had an even tougher time lately, with the stock price falling 34% in the past 90 days. We really feel for the shareholders in this scenario. It’s a good reminder of the importance of diversification, and it’s worth bearing in mind that life isn’t just about money, anyway.

With the stock losing 11% in the past week, it’s worth looking at how the company is performing and seeing if there are any red flags.

While the markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, stock prices reflect investor sentiment, not just the underlying performance of the company. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and changes in the share price over time, we can get a sense of how investors’ attitudes towards a company have changed over time.

Over the five years of share price growth, Tibet Water Resources has gone from loss to profitability. This would generally be viewed as positive, so we’re surprised to see that the stock price is going down. Other measures can better explain the evolution of the share price.

It could be that the drop in income of 12% per year is seen as proof that Tibet’s water resources are dwindling. This could explain the weakness of the share price.

A different perspective

We are pleased to report that the shareholders of Tibet Water Resources have achieved a total shareholder return of 22% over one year. This certainly beats the loss of around 13% per year over the past five years. It makes us a little suspicious, but the company may have changed course.
