ROCE is an important metric for the comparison of similar companies. A relatively high ROCE shows New Residential Inv is potentially operating at a higher level of efficiency than other companies in its industry. If the company is generating high profits with its current level of capital, some of that money can be reinvested in more capital which will generally lead to higher returns and earnings per share growth.

For New Residential Inv, the return on capital employed ratio shows the current amount of assets may not actually be helping the company achieve higher returns, a note many investors will take into account when making long-term financial decisions.

Q2 Earnings Recap

New Residential Inv reported Q2 earnings per share at $0.34/share, which beat analyst predictions of $0.31/share.
