If you're looking for a multi-bagger, there's a few things to keep an eye out for. Ideally, a business will show two trends; firstly a growing return on capital employed (ROCE) and secondly, an increasing amount of capital employed. Ultimately, this demonstrates that it's a business that is reinvesting profits at increasing rates of return. In light of that, when we looked at Organización Soriana S. A. B. de C. V (BMV:SORIANAB) and its ROCE trend, we weren't exactly thrilled.

### What is Return On Capital Employed (ROCE)?

For those who don't know, ROCE is a measure of a company's yearly pre-tax profit (its return), relative to the capital employed in the business. Analysts use this formula to calculate it for Organización Soriana S. A. B. de C. V:

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

0.085 = Mex\$9.0b ÷ (Mex\$137b - Mex\$32b) (Based on the trailing twelve months to September 2021).

So, Organización Soriana S. A. B. de C. V has an ROCE of 8.5%. On its own, that's a low figure but it's around the 8.5% average generated by the Consumer Retailing industry.
