Return on Asset Definition
Return on asset (ROA) reveals how much profit a company earned in comparison to its overall asset. The value of ROA varies from industry and company. In general, the higher the value, the better a company is.
Return on Asset Formula
Return on Asset Calculation
Return on assets measures profit against the assets a company used to generate revenue. It is an important indicator of the asset intensity of a company. A lower ratio means a company is more asset-intensive, and vice versa. Additionally, a more asset-intensive company needs more money to continue generating revenue. Return on asset ratio is useful for investors to assess a company’s financial strength and efficiency to use resources. It is also very important for management to measure its performance against its planned business goals, or market competitors.
