General Mills  (NYSE:GIS) Return-on-Tangible-Asset Explanation

Return on tangible assets (ROTA) measures the rate of return on the average total tangible assets (total assets minus intangible assets). Tangible means physical in nature. Intangible Assets are assets that are not physical in nature, and typically "derive their value from legal or intellectual rights." ROTA measures a firm's efficiency at generating profits from its tangible assets. ROTA shows how well a company uses what it has to generate earnings. ROTAs can vary drastically across industries. Therefore, return on tangible assets should not be used to compare companies in different industries.


Be Aware

Like ROE and ROA, ROTA is calculated with only 12 months data. Fluctuations in the company’s earnings or business cycles can affect the ratio drastically. It is important to look at the ratio from a long term perspective. ROTA can be affected by events such as stock buyback or issuance, and by a company’s tax rate and its interest payment. ROTA may not reflect the true earning power of the assets. A more accurate measurement is ROC % (ROC).

Many analysts argue the higher return the better. Buffett states that really high ROTA may indicate vulnerability in the durability of the competitive advantage.
