Financial performance - Wipro Shares

The above image gives a clear picture of the last 5 years and the last two quarters’ financial performance. The parameters we will be looking at are Revenue, EBITDA, PAT, and EPS.

  • 5 years of Revenue growth is 5.27%, which is lower than the industry average. The industry average is 9.83%
  • EBITDA 5-year growth is at a CAGR of 3.4%. The EBITA has also shown a growth quarter on quarter.
  • The 5 years PAT (Profit after Tax) is just at a CAGR of 2.35%. The industry average growth rate of PAT is at a CAGR of 8.06%
  • In the last 5 years, they have lost the market share from 15.5% to 12.68%. This has a huge impact in terms of financial performance.

Even though the company has shown year on year growth (except this Q2’2021 vs Q2’2020), the growth in revenue and other financial parameters are very low.

But in the last 6 months, the stock price has moved to 100% post-COVID. That is why we continuously say there is no relation between business performance and share price.

As an intelligent investor, you should look at the business fundamentals and values and not at the share price.
