Canada's 100 biggest companies by return on equity Add to ...

Return on common equity (ROCE) tells you how much profit a company is generating for each dollar that shareholders have invested in the business. The average of annual returns over five years reduces the impact of a stellar year or a lousy one.

The Top 1000 rankings in ROB Magazine and this website only provide a limited snapshot of data for the top 1000 companies in Canada. The full database provides a complete guide to corporate performance in Canada, with comprehensive shareholder information and can be purchased here. This year, Report on Business magazine is offering four individual products for download. Compatible with most spreadsheet software programs, the download files are indispensable tools for business development, sales targeting, and investing.
