Given that Vereinigte Filzfabriken only made
minimal earnings in the last twelve months, we'll focus on revenue
to gauge its business development. As a general rule, we think this
kind of company is more comparable to loss-making stocks, since the
actual profit is so low. It would be hard to believe in a more
profitable future without growing revenues.
In the last 5 years Vereinigte Filzfabriken saw
its revenue grow at 4.1% per year. That's not a very high growth
rate considering the bottom line. While it's hard to say just how
much value the company added over five years, the annualised share
price gain of 5.0% seems about right. We'd be looking for the
underlying business to grow revenue a bit faster.

We've already covered Vereinigte Filzfabriken's
share price action, but we should also mention its total
shareholder return (TSR). Arguably the TSR is a more complete
return calculation because it accounts for the value of dividends
(as if they were reinvested), along with the hypothetical value of
any discounted capital that have been offered to shareholders. We
note that Vereinigte Filzfabriken's TSR, at 48% is higher than its
share price return of 28%. When you consider it hasn't been paying
a dividend, this data suggests shareholders have benefitted from a
spin-off, or had the opportunity to acquire attractively priced
shares in a discounted capital raising.
We're pleased to report that Vereinigte
Filzfabriken shareholders have received a total shareholder return
of 12% over one year. That's better than the annualised return of
8.2% over half a decade, implying that the company is doing better
recently. In the best case scenario, this may hint at some real
business momentum, implying that now could be a great time to delve
deeper. Shareholders might want to examine this detailed historical
