The return on equity (ROE) ROE is a measure of how well a company uses investments to generate earnings growth. ROE is used for comparing the performance of companies in the same industry. It indicated the management's ability to generate income from the equity available to it. ROEs of 15-20% are generally considered good. ROEs are also a factor in stock valuation, in association with other financial ratios.
