Can anyone recommend a site that lists ROIC (return on invested capital)for publicly traded stocks?


Thank you in advance!

You can also go to: finanace.yahoo.com
enter the stock you want to check on and then hit: "More key statistics..." It will get you both "Return on Assets" and "Return on Equity" plus a load of other information.

FSLR will report 100%+ eps today, Actually probably WAY beyond that.
Now im as surprised as anyone at how high this stock has gotten but I think its a great example of what can happen when you combine rediculous eps growth with a great story. I dont speculate pre earnings but i will bet FSLR rallies on earnings.

mrstrader said...

Glad to hear you didn't speculate on earnings, lol!

christmasfern said...

Yes thats why i dont. FSLR is dissapointing AH.

This has been a really brutal earnings season so far.
