·1 min read

Looking at Q2, Newmont Goldcorp (NYSE: NEM) earned $431.00 million, a 5.69% increase from the preceding quarter. Newmont Goldcorp's sales decreased to $2.37 billion, a 8.37% change since Q1. In Q1, Newmont Goldcorp earned $457.00 million, and total sales reached $2.58 billion.

Why ROCE Is Significant

Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in Newmont Goldcorp’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, Newmont Goldcorp posted an ROCE of 0.02%.

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 Newmont Goldcorp's case, the positive ROCE ratio will be something investors pay attention to before making long-term financial decisions.

Q2 Earnings Insight

Newmont Goldcorp reported Q2 earnings per share at $0.32/share, which did not meet analyst predictions of $0.33/share.
