What Is ROCE?
Return on Capital Employed is a measure of yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital employed in a business. Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in a company’s ROCE. A higher ROCE is generally representative of successful growth in a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share for shareholders in the future. A low or negative ROCE suggests the opposite. In Q2, Alphabet posted an ROCE of 0.03%.
Alphabet reported Q2 earnings per share at $10.13/share against analyst predictions of $8.21/share.”
