Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

Most readers would already be aware that Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology's (SHSE:688103) stock increased significantly by 82% over the past three months. As most would know, fundamentals are what usually guide market price movements over the long-term, so we decided to look at the company's key financial indicators today to determine if they have any role to play in the recent price movement. In this article, we decided to focus on Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology's ROE.

Return on equity or ROE is an important factor to be considered by a shareholder because it tells them how effectively their capital is being reinvested. Simply put, it is used to assess the profitability of a company in relation to its equity capital.

How Is ROE Calculated?

The formula for ROE is:

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

So, based on the above formula, the ROE for Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology is:

7.9% = CN¥77m ÷ CN¥964m (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2022).

The 'return' is the yearly profit. Another way to think of that is that for every CN¥1 worth of equity, the company was able to earn CN¥0.08 in profit.

What Has ROE Got To Do With Earnings Growth?

Thus far, we have learned that ROE measures how efficiently a company is generating its profits. Depending on how much of these profits the company reinvests or "retains", and how effectively it does so, we are then able to assess a company's earnings growth potential. Assuming all else is equal, companies that have both a higher return on equity and higher profit retention are usually the ones that have a higher growth rate when compared to companies that don't have the same features.

A Side By Side comparison of Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology's Earnings Growth And 7.9% ROE

On the face of it, Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology's ROE is not much to talk about. However, its ROE is similar to the industry average of 8.7%, so we won't completely dismiss the company. Particularly, the exceptional 35% net income growth seen by Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology over the past five years is pretty remarkable. Given the slightly low ROE, it is likely that there could be some other aspects that are driving this growth. For example, it is possible that the company's management has made some good strategic decisions, or that the company has a low payout ratio.

Next, on comparing with the industry net income growth, we found that Kunshan GuoLi Electronic Technology's growth is quite high when compared to the industry average growth of 14% in the same period, which is great to see.
