ROCE Insights For Hawaiian Holdings

Share:

During Q2, Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ: HA) brought in sales totaling $60.00 million. However, earnings decreased 11.38%, resulting in a loss of $148.96 million. Hawaiian Holdings collected $559.14 million in revenue during Q1, but reported earnings showed a $168.10 million loss.

Why ROCE Is Significant

Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in Hawaiian Holdings’s Return on Capital Employed, a measure of yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital employed in a business. Generally, a higher ROCE suggests successful growth in a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share for shareholders in the future. In Q2, Hawaiian Holdings posted an ROCE of -0.18%.

It is important to keep in mind ROCE evaluates past performance and is not used as a predictive tool. It is a good measure of a company's recent performance, but several factors could affect earnings and sales in the near future.

Return on Capital Employed is an important measurement of efficiency and a useful tool when comparing companies that operate in the same industry. A relatively high ROCE indicates a company may be generating profits that can be reinvested into more capital, leading to higher returns and growing EPS for shareholders.

In Hawaiian Holdings's case, the ROCE ratio shows the amount of assets may not be helping the company achieve higher returns. Investors may take this into account before making any long-term financial decisions.
