Jim asks me "...is there a reason you use ROE, rather than ROIC?"

Yes, the answer is "Plain Laziness", and more familiarity with ROE (Return on Equity).

I've never made the switch over to ROIC (Return on Invested Capital) in my spreadsheets... but on your (implied) recommendation, I've printed off the Fool sheets on ROIC, and will consider making the switch after I've evaluated the issue.

More later on that.

Until I make the switch, I'll be soon posting some comparisons that will still use ROE -- still a very useful tool.

Jim, thanks for the "head's up" about ROIC. If you want to explain here why you like ROIC better than ROE, it'll be helpful to all China Connection readers. If you do, please start a new thread with a new post.

Have an up day,
Larry
