Jardine Cycle & Carriage (SGX:C07) Will Be Hoping To Turn Its Returns On Capital Around

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

To find a multi-bagger stock, what are the underlying trends we should look for in a business? Typically, we'll want to notice a trend of growing return on capital employed (ROCE) and alongside that, an expanding base of capital employed. If you see this, it typically means it's a company with a great business model and plenty of profitable reinvestment opportunities. However, after investigating Jardine Cycle & Carriage (SGX:C07), we don't think it's current trends fit the mold of a multi-bagger.

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

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. Analysts use this formula to calculate it for Jardine Cycle & Carriage:

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

0.079 = US$1.7b ÷ (US$29b - US$7.6b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to December 2021).

So, Jardine Cycle & Carriage has an ROCE of 7.9%. In absolute terms, that's a low return but it's around the Industrials industry average of 7.1%.

The Trend Of ROCE

However, given capital employed and revenue have both increased it appears that the business is currently pursuing growth, at the consequence of short term returns. And if the increased capital generates additional returns, the business, and thus shareholders, will benefit in the long run.
