In a perfect world, we'd like to see a company investing more capital into its business and ideally the returns earned from that capital are also increasing. Put simply, these types of businesses are compounding machines, meaning they are continually reinvesting their earnings at ever-higher rates of return. Speaking of which, we noticed some great changes in Voltamp Transformers' (NSE:VOLTAMP) returns on capital, so let's have a look.

What is Return On Capital Employed (ROCE)?
