Bethel Automotive Safety Systems' (SHSE:603596) 23% CAGR outpaced the company's earnings growth over the same five-year period - Simply Wall St

Bethel Automotive Safety Systems Co., Ltd (SHSE:603596) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 24% in the last quarter. But in stark contrast, the returns over the last half decade have impressed. It's fair to say most would be happy with 174% the gain in that time. We think it's more important to dwell on the long term returns than the short term returns. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it's cheap now.

On the back of a solid 7-day performance, let's check what role the company's fundamentals have played in driving long term shareholder returns.

Check out our latest analysis for Bethel Automotive Safety Systems

There is no denying that markets are sometimes efficient, but prices do not always reflect underlying business performance. One way to examine how market sentiment has changed over time is to look at the interaction between a company's share price and its earnings per share (EPS).

During five years of share price growth, Bethel Automotive Safety Systems achieved compound earnings per share (EPS) growth of 18% per year. So the EPS growth rate is rather close to the annualized share price gain of 22% per year. This indicates that investor sentiment towards the company has not changed a great deal. In fact, the share price seems to largely reflect the EPS growth.

We know that Bethel Automotive Safety Systems has improved its bottom line lately, but is it going to grow revenue? If you're interested, you could check this free report showing consensus revenue forecasts.

What About Dividends?

As well as measuring the share price return, investors should also consider the total shareholder return (TSR). The TSR incorporates the value of any spin-offs or discounted capital raisings, along with any dividends, based on the assumption that the dividends are reinvested. So for companies that pay a generous dividend, the TSR is often a lot higher than the share price return. In the case of Bethel Automotive Safety Systems, it has a TSR of 178% for the last 5 years. That exceeds its share price return that we previously mentioned. And there's no prize for guessing that the dividend payments largely explain the divergence!

A Different Perspective

The total return of 17% received by Bethel Automotive Safety Systems shareholders over the last year isn't far from the market return of -17%. Longer term investors wouldn't be so upset, since they would have made 23%, each year, over five years. If the stock price has been impacted by changing sentiment, rather than deteriorating business conditions, it could spell opportunity. It's always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term. But to understand Bethel Automotive Safety Systems better, we need to consider many other factors.

March 2024: The Automotive Industry Gears Up for an Electrifying Launch Season - BNN Breaking

The dawn of March 2024 marks a pivotal moment in the automotive sector, as industry giants like Hyundai and BYD ready themselves to roll out their latest innovations. It's a time of palpable excitement for car enthusiasts and potential buyers alike, promising a range of vehicles that cater to every taste and need. Among the stars of this auto show are the Hyundai Creta N Line and the BYD Seal EV, vehicles that symbolize the evolving landscape of the automotive industry.


A Glimpse into the Future: Hyundai Creta N Line

On the 11th of March, the curtains will rise on the Hyundai Creta N Line, a variant that promises to blend sportiness with sophistication. Hyundai has teased its sportier styling characterized by red inserts, disc brakes with red callipers, and larger alloys, all wrapped in a striking Thunder Blue color scheme. But the allure of the Creta N Line isn't just skin deep. Beneath the hood lies a 1.5-litre turbo-charged petrol engine that churns out 158 bhp and 253 Nm of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. This mechanical marvel is set to deliver a driving experience that's as exhilarating as it is smooth.

The Electric Dream: BYD Seal EV


While Hyundai steals the spotlight with its performance-oriented Creta, the electric vehicle (EV) segment is not to be overshadowed. The BYD Seal EV is poised to make a significant splash in the electric market, offering a blend of innovative technology and sustainable performance. Although specific details about the BYD Seal EV's features and capabilities are yet to be unveiled, the buzz surrounding its launch indicates a vehicle that could very well set new standards in the EV space. As the automotive industry continues its march towards electrification, models like the Seal EV are pivotal in shaping the future of eco-friendly transportation.

The Broader Impact

These launches are not just about new cars hitting the market; they represent the broader trends and shifts within the automotive industry. From the sporty aesthetics and enhanced performance of the Hyundai Creta N Line to the sustainable innovation of the BYD Seal EV, March 2024 is a showcase of the diverse directions in which the auto sector is moving. Furthermore, these launches come at a time when consumers are increasingly valuing both performance and environmental sustainability, making this season's lineup particularly resonant with the market's demands.

As the automotive industry gears up for this exciting launch season, one thing is clear: the future of driving is not just about getting from point A to point B, but how we get there. With vehicles that push the boundaries of performance, efficiency, and design, March 2024 is set to be a landmark month in the auto calendar. The Hyundai Creta N Line and the BYD Seal EV are just the beginning of what promises to be an electrifying year for car enthusiasts and eco-conscious drivers alike.

The Italian government contacted the Chinese car manufacturer Byd, as part of efforts to attract a second automaker to the country in addition to Stellantis. “We have some contacts (ongoing) to discuss the issue,” Michael Shu, CEO of BYD Europe, told the Bloomberg business news agency during the Geneva International Motor Show.

Byd is considering Italy as a site for a second production plant in Europe: a decision in this regard, Shu explained, "depends on our sales: we are now making excellent progress". BYD, which overtook Tesla in 2023 to become the world's largest electric vehicle maker, confirmed plans to build a production plant in Hungary late last year.
