We believe investing is smart because history shows that stock markets are growing in the long term. But not every stock you buy will perform as well as the market as a whole. Unfortunately for shareholders, while Real Estate Investment Fund BSR (TSE: HOM.UN) the share price has increased by 11% over the past year, which is less than the market yield. BSR Real Estate Investment Trust has not been listed for quite some time, so it is still not clear if it is the long-term winner.
It is undeniable that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect the underlying performance of a business. One way to study how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the relationship between a company’s stock price and its earnings per share (EPS).
BSR Real Estate Investment Trust moved from losses to earnings reporting last year.
When a company has just moved to profitability, earnings per share growth is not always the best way to look at a stock price.

What about dividends?
It is important to consider the overall return to shareholders as well as the return on the share price for any given share. TSR includes the cost of any additional income or increase in discounted capital together with any dividends on the assumption that the dividends are reinvested. It’s fair to say that TSR provides a more complete picture for stocks that pay dividends. In the case of BSR Real Estate Investment Trust, its TSR for the last year is 16%. This exceeds the return on his stock we mentioned earlier. The dividends paid by the company thus increased general shareholder income.
Shareholders of BSR Real Estate Investment Trust received 16% for the year (even taking into account dividends). While it’s always nice to make a profit in the stock market, we still note that the TSR was no better than the broader market return of around 39%. Shareholders are undoubtedly encouraged by the fact that the share price has improved recently – in just 90 days, it has risen 19%. The recent rise in stock prices may indicate that the story is changing for the better due to fundamental improvements.
