The Elixirr International plc (LON:ELIX) share price has had a bad week, falling 10%. But that doesn't detract from the splendid returns of the last year. Indeed, the share price is up an impressive 125% in that time. So it is important to view the recent reduction in price through that lense. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price.
Since the long term performance has been good but there's been a recent pullback of 10%, let's check if the fundamentals match the share price.
There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. One flawed but reasonable way to assess how sentiment around a company has changed is to compare the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price.
Elixirr International was able to grow EPS by 267% in the last twelve months. This EPS growth is significantly higher than the 125% increase in the share price. Therefore, it seems the market isn't as excited about Elixirr International as it was before. This could be an opportunity.
