Alibaba Health Information Technology (HKG:241) Might Have The Makings Of A Multi-Bagger

If we want to find a stock that could multiply over the long term, what are the underlying trends we should look for? Ideally, a business will show two trends; firstly a growing return on capital employed (ROCE) and secondly, an increasing amount of capital employed. This shows us that it’s a compounding machine, able to continually reinvest its earnings back into the business and generate higher returns. So when we looked at Alibaba Health Information Technology (HKG:241) and its trend of ROCE, we really liked what we saw.

Return On Capital Employed (ROCE): What Is It?

For those that aren’t sure what ROCE is, it measures the amount of pre-tax profits a company can generate from the capital employed in its business. To calculate this metric for Alibaba Health Information Technology, this is the formula:

Return on Capital Employed = Earnings Before Interest and Tax (EBIT) ÷ (Total Assets – Current Liabilities)

0.015 = CN¥247m ÷ (CN¥21b – CN¥5.2b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to September 2023).

Therefore, Alibaba Health Information Technology has an ROCE of 1.5%. In absolute terms, that’s a low return and it also under-performs the Consumer Retailing industry average of 8.5%.
