Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

If you're not sure where to start when looking for the next multi-bagger, there are a few key trends you should keep an eye out for. In a perfect world, we'd like to see a company investing more capital into its business and ideally the returns earned from that capital are also increasing. Put simply, these types of businesses are compounding machines, meaning they are continually reinvesting their earnings at ever-higher rates of return. With that in mind, the ROCE of Nantong Jiangshan Agrochemical & ChemicalsLtd (SHSE:600389) looks great, so lets see what the trend can tell us.

Understanding Return On Capital Employed (ROCE)

For those that aren't sure what ROCE is, it measures the amount of pre-tax profits a company can generate from the capital employed in its business. The formula for this calculation on Nantong Jiangshan Agrochemical & ChemicalsLtd is:

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

0.45 = CN¥1.6b ÷ (CN¥6.2b - CN¥2.7b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2022).

Thus, Nantong Jiangshan Agrochemical & ChemicalsLtd has an ROCE of 45%. That's a fantastic return and not only that, it outpaces the average of 9.9% earned by companies in a similar industry.
