Generally speaking the aim of active stock picking is to find companies that provide returns that are superior to the market average. Buying under-rated businesses is one path to excess returns. For example, long term ORBIS AG (ETR:OBS) shareholders have enjoyed a 39% share price rise over the last half decade, well in excess of the market decline of around 9.9% (not including dividends).

So let's investigate and see if the longer term performance of the company has been in line with the underlying business' progress.

View our latest analysis for ORBIS

While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. By comparing earnings per share (EPS) and share price changes over time, we can get a feel for how investor attitudes to a company have morphed over time.

Over half a decade, ORBIS managed to grow its earnings per share at 11% a year. This EPS growth is higher than the 7% average annual increase in the share price. So one could conclude that the broader market has become more cautious towards the stock.

The company's earnings per share (over time) is depicted in the image below (click to see the exact numbers).

We know that ORBIS has improved its bottom line lately, but is it going to grow revenue? This free report showing analyst revenue forecasts should help you figure out if the EPS growth can be sustained.

What About Dividends?

As well as measuring the share price return, investors should also consider the total shareholder return (TSR). The TSR incorporates the value of any spin-offs or discounted capital raisings, along with any dividends, based on the assumption that the dividends are reinvested. It's fair to say that the TSR gives a more complete picture for stocks that pay a dividend. We note that for ORBIS the TSR over the last 5 years was 54%, which is better than the share price return mentioned above. This is largely a result of its dividend payments!

A Different Perspective

While it's never nice to take a loss, ORBIS shareholders can take comfort that , including dividends,their trailing twelve month loss of 7.9% wasn't as bad as the market loss of around 18%. Longer term investors wouldn't be so upset, since they would have made 9%, each year, over five years. In the best case scenario the last year is just a temporary blip on the journey to a brighter future. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important. Like risks, for instance. Every company has them, and we've spotted 3 warning signs for ORBIS (of which 1 is a bit unpleasant!) you should know about.

    Safe access to the main site is a top priority for Toto site users. If you experience sports betting in the old Toto with a lot of money and trust, you will clearly see why people insist on safe sports fields.

    Safely participating in an important site is a priority for users of the Toto site. If you experience sports betting on an old private Toto with excellent capital and reliability, you can clearly see why people insist on safe games.
