Explanation

1. Operating Income or EBIT is linked to Return on Capital for both regular definition and Joel Greenblatt's definition.

Walmart Inc's annualized ROC % for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2018 is calculated as:

ROC %(Q: Jul. 2018 )
=NOPAT/Average Invested Capital
=Operating Income*(1-Tax Rate)/( (Invested Capital (Q: Apr. 2018 ) + Invested Capital (Q: Jul. 2018 ))/2)
=23000 * ( 1 - 282.66% )/( (114010 + 109141)/2)
=-42011.8/111575.5
=-37.65 %

where

Invested Capital(Q: Apr. 2018 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Stockholders Equity - Cash
=36305 + 10038 + 75552 - 7885
=114010

Invested Capital(Q: Jul. 2018 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Stockholders Equity - Cash
=51568 + 2228 + 71185 - 15840
=109141

Note: The Operating Income data used here is four times the quarterly (Jul. 2018) operating income data.

2. Joel Greenblatt's definition of Return on Capital:

Walmart Inc's annualized ROC (Joel Greenblatt) % for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2018 is calculated as:

ROC (Joel Greenblatt's)(Q: Jul. 2018 )
=EBIT/Average of (Net fixed Assets + Net Working Capital)
=EBIT/Average of (Property, Plant and Equipment+Net Working Capital)
     Q: Apr. 2018  Q: Jul. 2018
=EBIT/( ( (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) + (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) )/2 )
=3808/( ( (114800 + max(-19362, 0)) + (111017 + max(-18925, 0)) )/2 )
=3808/( ( 114800 + 111017 )/2 )
=3808/112908.5
=3.37 %

where Working Capital is:

Working Capital(Q: Apr. 2018 )
=(Accounts Receivable + Total Inventories + Other Current Assets) - (Accounts Payable & Accrued Expense + Defer. Rev. + Other Current Liabilities)
=(4568 + 43303 + 3486) - (70719 + 0 + 0)
=-19362

Working Capital(Q: Jul. 2018 )
=(Accounts Receivable + Total Inventories + Other Current Assets) - (Accounts Payable & Accrued Expense + Defer. Rev. + Other Current Liabilities)
=(5002 + 41985 + 3543) - (69455 + 0 + 0)
=-18925

When net working capital is negative, 0 is used.

Note: The EBIT data used here is four times the quarterly (Jul. 2018) EBIT data.

3. Operating Income is also linked to Operating Margin:

Be Aware

Compared with a company's EBITDA margin, Operating Margin can be manipulated by adjusting the rate of depreciation, depletion and amortization (DDA).

If a company is facing competition, its Operating Margin may decline. Often the Operating Margin declines well before the company's revenue or even profit decline. Therefore, Operating Margin is a very important indicator of whether the company is facing problems.

For instance, by 2012, Nokia (NOK)'s problems were well known and its stock had lost more than 90% of its market value since 2007. But Nokia's Operating Margin had already been in decline since 2002, although its earnings per share were still rising. Investors who paid attention to Operating Margin would have avoided this huge loss. The same can be said for Research-in-Motion (RIMM).

Therefore, Operating Margin is a very important screening filter for GuruFocus. GuruFocus's Buffett-Munger screener requires that the profit margin is either consistent or expanding. The Model Portfolio of the Buffett-Munger screener has outperformed the market every year since inception in 2009.
