Kano Health, Inc. (NYSE: Kano) shareholders should be pleased as the stock price rose 10 percent last month. But that doesn’t change the fact that last year’s answers are gut-wrenching. In particular, the stock price nosedived 78 percent. So it’s not that surprising to see a bit of a stir. The main thing is whether the company can change it, long term.
Since Kano Health shed US$42m from its value in the last 7 days, let’s see if the long-term decline is driven by the economics of the business.
Since Kano Health has posted losses over the past twelve months, we think the market is probably focused on revenue and earnings growth, at least for the time being. Shareholders of unprofitable companies often expect strong earnings growth. Some companies are willing to postpone profitability in order to grow revenue faster, but in this case, one can expect good online growth.
Kano Health increased its revenue by 85 percent compared to last year. This is a better result than many other loss-making companies. So the 78% stock price crash makes us think that the company has somehow disappointed market participants. A strange thing is definitely affecting the stock price; We think the company has somehow destroyed the price. What is clear is that the market is not currently valuing the company on revenue growth. Of course, investors tend to overreact when they’re nervous, so selling can be unreasonably hard.

A different perspective
We doubt Kano Health shareholders will be happy about losing 78% in twelve months. That’s 7.9% less than the lost market. That’s disappointing, but keep in mind that sales on the market are useless. The share price has continued to decline, down 68 percent over the past three months, reflecting a lack of investor enthusiasm. Basically, most investors should be wary of buying into an underperforming stock unless the business itself has clearly improved. I find it very interesting to look at stock price as a proxy for business performance over the long term. But to gain true insight, we need to consider other information as well.
