Bilibili isn’t currently profitable, so most analysts would look to revenue growth to get an idea of how fast the underlying business is growing.

That’s because fast revenue growth can be easily extrapolated to forecast profits, often of considerable size.
In the last year Bilibili saw its revenue grow by 71%. That’s a head and shoulders above most loss-making companies. And the share price has responded, gaining 221% as we previously mentioned.
