Triumph Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:TBK) shareholders might be concerned after seeing the share price drop 17% in the last quarter. But over five years returns have been remarkably great. Indeed, the share price is up a whopping 336% in that time. So it might be that some shareholders are taking profits after good performance. But the real question is whether the business fundamentals can improve over the long term.
To quote Buffett, 'Ships will sail around the world but the Flat Earth Society will flourish. There will continue to be wide discrepancies between price and value in the marketplace...' One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.
During five years of share price growth, Triumph Bancorp achieved compound earnings per share (EPS) growth of 34% per year. That makes the EPS growth particularly close to the yearly share price growth of 34%. This indicates that investor sentiment towards the company has not changed a great deal. Rather, the share price has approximately tracked EPS growth.

A Different Perspective
We're pleased to report that Triumph Bancorp shareholders have received a total shareholder return of 178% over one year. That's better than the annualised return of 34% over half a decade, implying that the company is doing better recently. Given the share price momentum remains strong, it might be worth taking a closer look at the stock, lest you miss an opportunity. I find it very interesting to look at share price over the long term as a proxy for business performance. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too.
