CONSOL Energy's Return On Capital Employed Overview

By Benzinga Insights

CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CEIX) brought in sales totaling $358.53 million during Q1 according to data provided by Benzinga Pro. However, earnings decreased 103.79%, resulting in a loss of $4.45 million. CONSOL Energy earned $117.32 million, and sales totaled $480.62 million in Q4.

Why Is ROCE Significant?

Earnings data without context is not clear and can be difficult to base trading decisions on. Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) helps to filter signal from noise by measuring yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital employed by a business. Generally, a higher ROCE suggests successful growth of a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share in the future. In Q1, CONSOL Energy posted an ROCE of -0.01%.

It is important to keep in mind that ROCE evaluates past performance and is not used as a predictive tool. It is a good measure of a company's recent performance, but does not account for factors that could affect earnings and sales in the near future.

ROCE is a powerful metric for comparing the effectiveness of capital allocation for similar companies. A relatively high ROCE shows CONSOL Energy 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, ultimately, earnings per share (EPS) growth.

For CONSOL Energy, a negative ROCE ratio of -0.01% suggests that management may not be effectively allocating their capital. Effective capital allocation is a positive indicator that a company will achieve more durable success and favorable long-term returns; poor capital allocation can be a leech on the performance of a company over time.

Analyst Predictions

CONSOL Energy reported Q1 earnings per share at $2.08/share, which beat analyst predictions of $1.84/share.
