It is undeniable that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect the underlying performance of companies. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and changes in the share price over time, we can get a sense of how investors’ attitudes towards a company have changed over time.
In the past year, China Shineway Pharmaceutical Group has seen its earnings per share drop by 39%.
Given the rise in the share price, we doubt the market will measure EPS progress. Therefore, it seems likely that investors will place more importance on measures other than BPA, for the time being.
We haven’t seen China Shineway Pharmaceutical Group increase dividend payouts yet, so the yield likely hasn’t helped push the stock up. The slightly lower turnover is not particularly impressive at first glance, which therefore does not explain the rise in the share price.

What about dividends?
It is important to consider the total shareholder return, as well as the share price return, for any given stock. While the share price return reflects only the change in the share price, the TSR includes the value of dividends (assuming they have been reinvested) and the benefit of any capital increase or spin- off updated. So, for companies that pay a generous dividend, the TSR is often much higher than the return on the share price. We note that for China Shineway Pharmaceutical Group, the TSR in the past year was 63%, which is better than the share price performance mentioned above. The dividends paid by the company thus boosted the total shareholder return.
A different perspective
It is nice to see that the shareholders of China Shineway Pharmaceutical Group have received a total shareholder return of 63% in the past year. And that includes the dividend. As the 1-year TSR is better than the 5-year TSR (the latter standing at 5% per year), it seems that the stock’s performance has improved in recent times. At the best of times, this can portend real business momentum, meaning that now may be a good time to dig deep. I find it very interesting to look at the long-term share price as an indicator of company performance. But to really understand better, we have to take other information into account as well.
