Shareholders Would Enjoy A Repeat Of Intellect Design Arena’s (NSE:INTELLECT) Recent Growth In Returns

If we want to find a stock that could multiply over the long term, what are the underlying trends we should look for? One common approach is to try and find a company with returns on capital employed (ROCE) that are increasing, in conjunction with a growing amount of capital employed. This shows us that it’s a compounding machine, able to continually reinvest its earnings back into the business and generate higher returns. With that in mind, the ROCE of Intellect Design Arena (NSE:INTELLECT) looks great, so lets see what the trend can tell us.

Return On Capital Employed (ROCE): What is it?

Just to clarify if you’re unsure, ROCE is a metric for evaluating how much pre-tax income (in percentage terms) a company earns on the capital invested in its business. Analysts use this formula to calculate it for Intellect Design Arena:

Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) (Total Assets – Current Liabilities)

0.23 = ₹3.6b (₹22b – ₹5.8b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2021),

Therefore, Intellect Design Arena has an ROCE of 23%. That’s a fantastic return and not only that, it outpaces the average of 13% earned by companies in a similar industry.
