Since Boston Omaha has not made a profit in the past twelve months, we are focusing on revenue growth for a quick view of business performance. In general, when a company is not making profits, we expect good sales growth. That’s because it’s difficult to be confident that a company is sustainable when sales growth is negligible and never makes a profit.

Boston Omaha sales grew 64% annually for three years. That’s way better than most loss-making companies. While long-term shareholders have made money, the 6.4% annual return over three years isn’t that big given the rising market. We would have thought the sales growth would have impressed buyers more. If the company leans toward profitability and can finance its growth, the market could offer an opportunity. But you might want to take a closer look at this one.
