DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (CVE:DMGI) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 15% in the last month. But that cannot eclipse the spectacular share price rise we've seen over the last twelve months. Indeed, the share price is up a whopping 980% in that time. So the recent fall isn't enough to negate the good performance. Only time will tell if there is still too much optimism currently reflected in the share price. It really delights us to see such great share price performance for investors.
While this past week has detracted from the company's one-year return, let's look at the recent trends of the underlying business and see if the gains have been in alignment.
DMG Blockchain Solutions isn't currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing. When a company doesn't make profits, we'd generally expect to see good revenue growth. That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.
Over the last twelve months, DMG Blockchain Solutions' revenue grew by 2.7%. That's not a very high growth rate considering it doesn't make profits. So it's truly surprising that the share price rocketed 980% in a single year. We're happy that investors have made money, but we can't help questioning whether the rise is sustainable. This is an example of the huge profits some lucky shareholders occasionally make on growth stocks.

A Different Perspective
It's nice to see that DMG Blockchain Solutions shareholders have gained 980% (in total) over the last year. That's better than the annualized TSR of 57% over the last three years. Given the track record of solid returns over varying time frames, it might be worth putting DMG Blockchain Solutions on your watchlist. 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. Take risks, for example - DMG Blockchain Solutions has 3 warning signs (and 2 which are a bit unpleasant) we think you should know about.
