Nope, there is no link between profits and stock price.
Profits can go up and stock price can go down.
Profits can go down and stock price can raise.
Stock price is 100% based on what the next guy is willing to pay for it.
Actually stock prices in the last decade or so have been MOST influenced by the quality of coke and crack delivered to Wall Street than by much of anything else.
