Main Street Capital  (NYSE:MAIN) Return-on-Tangible-Equity Explanation

Return on Tangible Equity (ROTE) measures the rate of return on the ownership interest (shareholder's tangible equity) of the common stock owners. It measures a firm's efficiency at generating profits from every unit of shareholders' tangible equity (shareholders equity minus intangibles). ROTE shows how well a company uses investment funds to generate earnings growth. ROTEs between 15% and 20% are considered desirable.


Be Aware

Net income attributable to common stockholders is used.

Because a company can increase its return on tangible equity by having more financial leverage, it is important to watch the leverage ratio when investing in high ROTE companies. Like Return-on-Tangible-Asset, ROTE is calculated with only 12 months data. Fluctuations in company's earnings or business cycles can affect the ratio drastically. It is important to look at the ratio from a long term perspective.

Asset light businesses require very few assets to generate very high earnings. Their ROTEs can be extremely high.
