Enviri (NYSE:NVRI) Shareholders Are up 7.5% This Past Week, but Still in the Red Over the Last Five Years

Simply Wall St ·  Jun 4 18:00

Enviri Corporation (NYSE:NVRI) shareholders should be happy to see the share price up 25% in the last month.    But that is little comfort to those holding over the last half decade, sitting on a big loss.  In that time the share price has delivered a rude shock to holders, who find themselves down 67% after a long stretch.  So is the recent increase sufficient to restore confidence in the stock? Not yet.  We'd err towards caution given the long term under-performance.    

The recent uptick of 7.5% could be a positive sign of things to come, so let's take a look at historical fundamentals.  

Because Enviri made a loss in the last twelve months, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now.  Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip.  That's because it's hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.  

In the last half decade, Enviri saw its revenue increase by 9.3% per year.   That's a pretty good rate for a long time period.   The share price, meanwhile, has fallen 11% compounded, over five years.  That suggests the market is disappointed with the current growth rate.  A pessimistic market can create opportunities.      

The company's revenue and earnings (over time) are depicted in the image below (click to see the exact numbers).

It's good to see that there was some significant insider buying in the last three months. That's a positive.  That said, we think earnings and revenue growth trends are even more important factors to consider.   If you are thinking of buying or selling Enviri stock, you should check out this free report showing analyst profit forecasts.

A Different Perspective

Enviri provided a TSR of 9.6% over the last twelve months.  But that return falls short of the market.    On the bright side, that's still a gain, and it is certainly better than the yearly loss of about 11% endured over half a decade.  It could well be that the business is stabilizing.        It is all well and good that insiders have been buying shares, but we suggest you check here to see what price insiders were buying at.
