There’s no doubt that investing in the stock market is a truly brilliant way to build wealth. But not every stock you buy will perform as well as the overall market. Unfortunately for shareholders, while the The Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange Ltd. (TLV:TASE) share price is up 16% in the last year, that falls short of the market return. Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange hasn’t been listed for long, so it’s still not clear if it is a long term winner.
On the back of a solid 7-day performance, let’s check what role the company’s fundamentals have played in driving long term shareholder returns.
While the efficient markets hypothesis continues to be taught by some, it has been proven that markets are over-reactive dynamic systems, and investors are not always rational. One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.
During the last year Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange grew its earnings per share (EPS) by 48%. This EPS growth is significantly higher than the 16% increase in the share price. So it seems like the market has cooled on Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange, despite the growth. Interesting.
