Unless you borrow money to invest, the potential losses are limited. But when you pick a company that is really flourishing, you can make more than 100%. For example, the Thunderbird Entertainment Group Inc. (CVE:TBRD) share price has soared 210% in the last year. Most would be very happy with that, especially in just one year! On the other hand, the stock price has retraced 5.7% in the last week. We'll need to follow Thunderbird Entertainment Group for a while to get a better sense of its share price trend, since it hasn't been listed for particularly long.
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.
Thunderbird Entertainment Group was able to grow EPS by 52% in the last twelve months. This EPS growth is significantly lower than the 210% increase in the share price. This indicates that the market is now more optimistic about the stock.
The graphic below depicts how EPS has changed over time (unveil the exact values by clicking on the image).

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Thunderbird Entertainment Group shareholders have gained 210% over the last year.

It seems likely the market is waiting on fundamental developments with the business before pushing the share price higher (or lower). It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Thunderbird Entertainment Group better, we need to consider many other factors.
