L&T Technology Services Limited (NSE:LTTS) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 14% in the last quarter.
But that doesn’t change the reality that over twelve months the stock has done really well.
Looking at the full year, the company has easily bested an index fund by gaining 18%.
In his essay The Superinvestors of Graham-and-Doddsville Warren Buffett described how share prices do not always rationally reflect the value of a business.
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 L&T Technology Services grew its earnings per share (EPS) by 63%.
It’s fair to say that the share price gain of 18% did not keep pace with the EPS growth.
Therefore, it seems the market isn’t as excited about L&T Technology Services as it was before. This could be an opportunity.
