MAAS Group Holdings (ASX:MGH) shareholders have earned a 41% return over the last year


While MAAS Group Holdings Limited (ASX:MGH) shareholders are probably generally happy, the stock hasn’t had particularly good run recently, with the share price falling 10% in the last quarter. But looking back over the last year, the returns have actually been rather pleasing! In that time we’ve seen the stock easily surpass the market return, with a gain of 39%.
With that in mind, it’s worth seeing if the company’s underlying fundamentals have been the driver of long term performance, or if there are some discrepancies.

A Different Perspective
It’s nice to see that MAAS Group Holdings shareholders have gained 41% over the last year, including dividends. Unfortunately the share price is down 10% over the last quarter. Shorter term share price moves often don’t signify much about the business itself. 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.
