ROE

Return on Equity

A publicly-traded company's earnings divided by the amount of money invested in stock, expressed as a percentage. This is a measure of how well the company is investing the money invested in it. A high return on equity indicates that the company is spending wisely and is likely profitable; a low return on equity indicates the opposite. As a result, high returns on equity lead to higher stock prices. Some analysts believe that return on equity is the single most important indicator of publicly-traded companies' health.
