While they may appear to be comparable on the surface, their attitudes about capital spending are vastly different. Investors can use the ROCE ratio to assess different companies in the market before making an investment decision.

What to consider when investing?

The biggest disadvantage of ROCE is that it calculates returns based on the book value of the company's assets. Even though cash flow has been constant, ROCE will increase as items are depreciated. As a result, older companies with depreciated assets will have a greater ROCE than newer, presumably better companies.
