It is a pleasure to report that the Global Internet of People, Inc. (NASDAQ:SDH) is up 38% in the last quarter. But that is minimal compensation for the share price under-performance over the last year. In fact the stock is down 27% in the last year, well below the market return.
Although the past week has been more reassuring for shareholders, they’re still in the red over the last year, so let’s see if the underlying business has been responsible for the decline.

A Different Perspective
Global Internet of People shareholders are down 27% for the year, even worse than the market loss of 12%. There’s no doubt that’s a disappointment, but the stock may well have fared better in a stronger market. Putting aside the last twelve months, it’s good to see the share price has rebounded by 38%, in the last ninety days. Let’s just hope this isn’t the widely-feared ‘dead cat bounce’ (which would indicate further declines to come). It’s always interesting to track share price performance over the longer term.
