Hi Joel,

Your post seems to have been interpreted differently than how I am. If they've answered your question, then feel free to ignore me.


Does anyone know a good (and free) webpage that has ROIC already calculated for publicly traded companies?


By ROIC you mean "return on invested capital" right?

One free site that gives ROIC figures (along with ROE and ROA) is the MSN Money site:

http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/home.asp

Just type in a ticker in the little box in the upper right corner where the word "Symbol(s)" appear.

For example, here's Coke (KO):

http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/invsub/results/compare.asp?Page=InvestmentReturns&Symbol=KO

I believe they define ROC as

NOPAT / (Equity + Long term Debt + Preferred Equity)

NOPAT = Net Operating Profit after taxes

but I can't seem to find the definitions page anymore. Must have gotten lost when they "new-and-improved" the site the last time.
