Would Shareholders Who Purchased Infinity Pharmaceuticals’ (NASDAQ:INFI) Stock Five Years Be Happy With The Share price Today?

It is a pleasure to report that the Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:INFI) is up 42% in the last quarter. But will that repair the damage for the weary investors who have owned this stock as it declined over half a decade? Probably not. Like a ship taking on water, the share price has sunk 87% in that time. The recent bounce might mean the long decline is over, but we are not confident. The real question is whether the business can leave its past behind and improve itself over the years ahead.

We really feel for shareholders in this scenario. It’s a good reminder of the importance of diversification, and it’s worth keeping in mind there’s more to life than money, anyway.

Check out our latest analysis for Infinity Pharmaceuticals

We don’t think Infinity Pharmaceuticals’ revenue of US$1,438,000 is enough to establish significant demand. This state of affairs suggests that venture capitalists won’t provide funds on attractive terms. As a result, we think it’s unlikely shareholders are paying much attention to current revenue, but rather speculating on growth in the years to come. For example, they may be hoping that Infinity Pharmaceuticals comes up with a great new product, before it runs out of money.

We think companies that have neither significant revenues nor profits are pretty high risk. There is almost always a chance they will need to raise more capital, and their progress – and share price – will dictate how dilutive that is to current holders. While some such companies do very well over the long term, others become hyped up by promoters before eventually falling back down to earth, and going bankrupt (or being recapitalized). Infinity Pharmaceuticals has already given some investors a taste of the bitter losses that high risk investing can cause.

  • After meeting with a financial planner, my husband and I set out to pay off our credit card debt. We did it in six months, and during that time I started earning more money than ever.
  • Our financial planner recommended that I buy a term life insurance policy since I was only protected for $20,000 on my husband’s employer-provided policy.
  • He recommended $1.4 million in coverage for me, which felt high. But after accounting for our standard of living and future financial goals, I went for it.
  • Now, I feel good about paying $70 a month for that peace of mind.

“Protect, optimize, grow.”

Tom, our CFP, introduced this financial approach on our first call — a simple, three-step perspective that would guide our work together. The idea is that before you can build wealth, you need to protect your assets (through life and disability insurance) and optimize cash flow (in our case, setting up a separate account for my business and hiring an experienced CPA to help with taxes).

We started by getting out of debt

When my husband, Tim, and I first started working with Tom in 2019, we came up with a plan specific to our financial situation. We decided together that we would work as hard as we could to pay off as much debt as possible, then start protecting and optimizing our money. The approach made sense. Clean up the mess we had made in
