A Look at How Adjustments for Intangibles Affect ROIC

  • We extend the analysis from our recent report, “Return on Invested Capital,” by adjusting ROIC for all companies to reflect intangible investment.
  • While the median and aggregate ROIC for the adjusted figures is similar to the traditional one, the adjusted figures have much less dispersion.
  • The main result is that extremely high and low ROICs regress toward the mean.
  • We believe these adjustments represent a step toward a more accurate view of the magnitude and return on investment.
