# Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group Co., Ltd.'s (HKG:2163) Stock Is Rallying But Financials Look Ambiguous: Will The Momentum Continue?

Simply Wall St ·  05/06 07:13

Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group (HKG:2163) has had a great run on the share market with its stock up by a significant 11% over the last week. But the company's key financial indicators appear to be differing across the board and that makes us question whether or not the company's current share price momentum can be maintained. In this article, we decided to focus on Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's ROE.

ROE or return on equity is a useful tool to assess how effectively a company can generate returns on the investment it received from its shareholders. Simply put, it is used to assess the profitability of a company in relation to its equity capital.

### How Do You Calculate Return On Equity?

ROE can be calculated by using the formula:

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

So, based on the above formula, the ROE for Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group is:

0.7% = CN¥32m ÷ CN¥4.2b (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2021).

The 'return' refers to a company's earnings over the last year. One way to conceptualize this is that for each HK\$1 of shareholders' capital it has, the company made HK\$0.01 in profit.

### Why Is ROE Important For Earnings Growth?

So far, we've learned that ROE is a measure of a company's profitability. 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. Generally speaking, other things being equal, firms with a high return on equity and profit retention, have a higher growth rate than firms that don't share these attributes.

### Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's Earnings Growth And 0.7% ROE

It is hard to argue that Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's ROE is much good in and of itself. Even when compared to the industry average of 8.0%, the ROE figure is pretty disappointing. For this reason, Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's five year net income decline of 5.6% is not surprising given its lower ROE. However, there could also be other factors causing the earnings to decline. For example, the business has allocated capital poorly, or that the company has a very high payout ratio.

As a next step, we compared Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's performance with the industry and found thatChangsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's performance is depressing even when compared with the industry, which has shrunk its earnings at a rate of 4.6% in the same period, which is a slower than the company.

### Is Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group Efficiently Re- investing Its Profits?

While the company did payout a portion of its dividend in the past, it currently doesn't pay a dividend. This implies that potentially all of its profits are being reinvested in the business.

### Conclusion

In total, we're a bit ambivalent about Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group's performance. While the company does have a high rate of reinvestment, the low ROE means that all that reinvestment is not reaping any benefit to its investors, and moreover, its having a negative impact on the earnings growth. Having said that, looking at current analyst estimates, we found that the company's earnings growth rate is expected to see a huge improvement. Are these analysts expectations based on the broad expectations for the industry, or on the company's fundamentals? Click here to be taken to our analyst's forecasts page for the company.
