Explanation is confusing[edit]

This is very confusing!!! Can someone please explain in simple english what ROE is and how to compare companies of the same industry based on ROE? Sirishar 11:14, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Look up shareholders equity in the balance sheet in year A and year A+1. Average them. Divide Net income by this (average equity). Higher is better.--Gregalton 14:13, 4 July 2007 (UTC)


Is ROA = Return on assets? I suggest spelling it out adding a link. GilesW 12:23, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Gewinn geteilt (Division Ein Ganzes in gleiche Teile zerlegen) durch Eigenkapital?[edit]

  • Mit welcher Gewinnzahl 2007 wird da gerechnet?
  • Jahresgewinn 2007?
  • Vorsteuerjahresgewinn 2007?
  • Nachsteuerjahresgewinn 2007?
  • Monatsgewinn 2007?
  • Quartalsgewinn 2007?
  • Negativer Gewinn 2007?
  • Eigenkapital gleich Grundkapital? ([1] PDF: "[PDF / 12 Seiten / 768 KB] Seite 7 Grundkapital")
  • Wieso teilt man überhaupt Gewinn durch Eigenkapital?
  • Ist das Eigenkapital/Grundkapital ein Teil des Gewinns? Subtraktion? Addition? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:52, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

After tax net income[edit]

I think "after tax" (in ROE formula) is obsolete, as NET INCOME is always an after-tax measure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:22, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
