% Increase is 6.8/0.2240 = 30000 percent increase.

But actually for the three years time period considered the stock is down about 56% for the three years.

Why is this much of discrepancy... I am about to scratch off my algo, just checked where I invested large amount of my money found this, my algo supposed to look for uptrend but actually this is downtrend.

Is this the only stock or there are many others..

Anyone help me with this am I missing something??

It looks like our datasource is missing a 50:1 split from 6/17/2016. We've got a fix for that coming in.

Data errors are always present in financial data; I'm sure we haven't found them all. The good news is that with thousands of people looking at our data, we get error reports and clean them up. It makes for a pretty high-quality data source because of the level of review.

Sorry for the confusion.
