While Domiki Kritis S.A. (ATH:DOMIK) shareholders are probably generally happy, the stock hasn't had particularly good run recently, with the share price falling 11% in the last quarter. But that doesn't change the fact that the returns over the last year have been very strong. During that period, the share price soared a full 226%. So it is important to view the recent reduction in price through that lense. The real question is whether the business is trending in the right direction.
To paraphrase Benjamin Graham: Over the short term the market is a voting machine, but over the long term it's a weighing machine. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).
During the last year Domiki Kritis grew its earnings per share, moving from a loss to a profit.
We think the growth looks very prospective, so we're not surprised the market liked it too. Generally speaking the profitability inflection point is a great time to research a company closely, lest you miss an opportunity to profit.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that Domiki Kritis shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 226% over the last year. That certainly beats the loss of about 6.3% per year over the last half decade. We generally put more weight on the long term performance over the short term, but the recent improvement could hint at a (positive) inflection point within the business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
