Trilogy International Partners'(TSE:TRL) Share Price Is Down 76% Over The Past Three Years.

Simply Wall St
·3 min read

Every investor on earth makes bad calls sometimes. But really big losses can really drag down an overall portfolio. So consider, for a moment, the misfortune of Trilogy International Partners Inc. (TSE:TRL) investors who have held the stock for three years as it declined a whopping 76%. That would be a disturbing experience. And more recent buyers are having a tough time too, with a drop of 33% in the last year. On the other hand the share price has bounced 6.7% over the last week.

View our latest analysis for Trilogy International Partners

Given that Trilogy International Partners didn't make a profit in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue growth to form a quick view of its business development. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. As you can imagine, fast revenue growth, when maintained, often leads to fast profit growth.

Over the last three years, Trilogy International Partners' revenue dropped 8.6% per year. That's not what investors generally want to see. Having said that the 21% annualized share price decline highlights the risk of investing in unprofitable companies. This business clearly needs to grow revenues if it is to perform as investors hope. Don't let a share price decline ruin your calm. You make better decisions when you're calm.

We like that insiders have been buying shares in the last twelve months. Even so, future earnings will be far more important to whether current shareholders make money. So it makes a lot of sense to check out what analysts think Trilogy International Partners will earn in the future (free profit forecasts).

A Different Perspective

Trilogy International Partners shareholders are down 33% for the year, but the broader market is up 3.9%. Of course the long term matters more than the short term, and even great stocks will sometimes have a poor year. Unfortunately, the longer term story isn't pretty, with investment losses running at 21% per year over three years. We would want clear information suggesting the company will grow, before taking the view that the share price will stabilize. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too. Consider for instance, the ever-present spectre of investment risk. We've identified 1 warning sign with Trilogy International Partners , and understanding them should be part of your investment process.
