TransparentShare - Return on Equity

Definition: return on equity

Return on equity is the ratio of a company's profit to equity. As a rule, the net income of the last year reported is used for the calculation.



Significance for the evaluation

The higher the return on equity, the more economically a company operates. A high return on equity can be seen as protection against bad times.
We rate a return on equity of more than 15% as positive.

Calculation

Return on equity in % = (net income / equity) * 100

Example

Lufthansa (on April 16, 2019): return on equity = (2,196 million / 9,573 million) * 100 = 22.94%
