1⃣

Return on Equity (#ROE) and Return on Capital Employed (#ROCE) are two important Financial Ratios used in #FundamentalAnalysis of Stocks.

#StockMarket #Investing
2⃣

Return on Equity (ROE) is the ratio of Net Income (Net Profit) of a company and it’s Total Equity (Shareholder's Equity).

Here - Shareholders Equity = Share Capital + Reserves & Surplus.

3⃣

#ROE is a measure of how much net profit a company is making for every rupee invested by its shareholders in the company.

It can be said that higher the ROE, better it is for the equity shareholders. It tells shareholders about how effectively their money is being used.
4⃣

However, you should not trust high ROE blindly. Biggest drawbacks or weaknesses of ROE is that it completely ignores debt.

Hence for companies having high levels of debt, ROE will give a higher but misleading value & therefore we need to look at #ROCE along with #ROE.
5⃣

Return on Capital Employed is ratio of company’s Operating Profit i.e., Profit before Interest & Taxes (EBIT) and its Total Capital Employed.

Here - Total Capital Employed = Shareholder’s Equity + Short Term Debt + Long Term Debt

6⃣

Since #ROCE measures how much profit a company generates with its total capital employed, it overcomes a major weakness of ROE.

It can be said that higher the ROCE, the better it is. It means that business is profitable & company is utilizing its capital more economically.
7⃣

ROCE is a long term profitability ratio because it shows how effectively company’s assets are performing while taking into consideration long term financing.

This is why ROCE is a more useful ratio than ROE to evaluate the longevity of a company.

8⃣

@WarrenBuffett prefers to invest in companies which have both #ROE and #ROCE above 20%.

✅He also prefers that value of ROE and ROCE should be close to each other.

❎He avoids investing in companies where there is a large difference between ROE and ROCE.
9⃣

Shall conclude this thread with a summary comparison table between #ROE & #ROCE

I worked on my first startup for 2.5years. It was an events app. Sunk in cost and expectations were so high, that I had to close it, despite getting consistent revenue.

In comparison, I wrote @CryptoJobsList in 2 days. And it's way more meaningful than what I've been doing in my events startup for 2.5 years.

When I let go of my engineering ego and let go of expectations that I need to raise capital and hustle for 4+ years — I started lauching fast and interating fast without any expectations — then I started coming up with something truly meaningful and useful ✨
