Good ROCE Level

The higher is the ROCE, the better. Because the firm is then earning more money with the capital that has been supplied by its shareholders.
When a firm consistently has a higher ROCE then its competitors that is also a good signal.

Minimum Acceptable Level of ROCE

My experience indicates that a good ROCE should be more than 6.5% to add real value to the business.
Why 6.5%?
One needs to compensate the following factors:
  • 4% for systematic and market risks, plus
  • 2% for long term inflation, plus
  • 0.5% for uncertainties in data and calculations.
Any ROCE below 6.5% creates doubts about the value that is being added by the business.
