Most readers would already be aware that Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's (SZSE:300656) stock increased significantly by 16% over the past week. However, we decided to pay attention to the company's fundamentals which don't appear to give a clear sign about the company's financial health. In this article, we decided to focus on Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's ROE.

Return on equity or ROE is a key measure used to assess how efficiently a company's management is utilizing the company's capital. In short, ROE shows the profit each dollar generates with respect to its shareholder investments.

## 如何計算股東權益報酬率？

The formula for ROE is:

roe的公式是：

Return on Equity = Net Profit (from continuing operations) ÷ Shareholders' Equity

So, based on the above formula, the ROE for Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology is:

0.7% = CN¥8.4m ÷ CN¥1.2b (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2024).

0.7% = CN¥840萬 ÷ CN¥12億 （截至2024年3月的過去十二個月）

The 'return' is the yearly profit. So, this means that for every CN¥1 of its shareholder's investments, the company generates a profit of CN¥0.01.

「回報」是年利潤。因此，這意味着對於其股東的每個CN¥1的投資，公司將創造CN¥0.01的利潤。

## ROE爲什麼對淨利潤增長很重要？

We have already established that ROE serves as an efficient profit-generating gauge for a company's future earnings. Based on how much of its profits the company chooses to reinvest or "retain", we are then able to evaluate a company's future ability to generate profits. Assuming everything else remains unchanged, the higher the ROE and profit retention, the higher the growth rate of a company compared to companies that don't necessarily bear these characteristics.

## 深圳民德電子技術的收益增長和0.7%的roe

As you can see, Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's ROE looks pretty weak. Not just that, even compared to the industry average of 6.3%, the company's ROE is entirely unremarkable. Accordingly, Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's low net income growth of 4.4% over the past five years can possibly be explained by the low ROE amongst other factors.

We then compared Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's net income growth with the industry and found that the company's growth figure is lower than the average industry growth rate of 6.4% in the same 5-year period, which is a bit concerning.

Earnings growth is a huge factor in stock valuation. What investors need to determine next is if the expected earnings growth, or the lack of it, is already built into the share price. This then helps them determine if the stock is placed for a bright or bleak future.

## 深圳民德電子技術是否有效地利用其留存收益？

Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology's low three-year median payout ratio of 18% (or a retention ratio of 82%) should mean that the company is retaining most of its earnings to fuel its growth. This should be reflected in its earnings growth number, but that's not the case. So there might be other factors at play here which could potentially be hampering growth. For example, the business has faced some headwinds.

In addition, Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology has been paying dividends over a period of six years suggesting that keeping up dividend payments is way more important to the management even if it comes at the cost of business growth.

## 結論

Overall, we have mixed feelings about Shenzhen MinDe Electronics Technology. While the company does have a high rate of profit retention, its low rate of return is probably hampering its earnings growth. Wrapping up, we would proceed with caution with this company and one way of doing that would be to look at the risk profile of the business.
