Hi,
I'm trying to write a paper on the financial statements of a German company (not that that's relevant). I am having a hard time understanding exactly what return on assets means. And it's specific difference from Return on Equity and Return on Investment. I have formulas for all three - but what does it all mean?!?!?!?!

Anyone?

Hello OCTperry,

Check out this TMF article, entitled "Your Company's Big, Fat Assets":

http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2003/mft03112104.htm?ref=foolwatch

It should provide the color you're looking for on ROA, plus has a couple of links for further research. Good luck with your paper.

Fool on,

(FYI: To search TMF content, go to the main page (www.fool.com) and type your keyword into the search box. In this instance, I just typed "ROA").
