We like these underlying capital return trends at Logwin (ETR: TGHN)

If you’re looking for a multi-bagger, there are a few things to watch out for. Typically, we will want to notice a growth trend to return to on capital employed (ROCE) and at the same time, a based capital employed. This shows us that it is a compounding machine, capable of continuously reinvesting its profits back into the business and generating higher returns. Speaking of which, we’ve noticed big changes in Logwin’s (ETR:TGHN) returns to capital, so let’s take a look.

Understanding return on capital employed (ROCE)

Just to clarify if you’re not sure, ROCE is a measure of the pre-tax income (as a percentage) that a business earns on the capital invested in its business. Analysts use this formula to calculate it for Logwin:

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

0.19 = €66m ÷ (€668m – €325m) (Based on the last twelve months to June 2021).

So, Logwin has a ROCE of 19%. In itself, this is a standard return, but it is much better than the 15% generated by the logistics industry.

What the ROCE trend can tell us

The trends we’ve noticed at Logwin are quite reassuring. Over the past five years, return on capital employed has increased substantially to 19%. Basically, the business earns more per dollar of invested capital and on top of that, 97% more capital is also utilized now. This may indicate that there are many opportunities to invest capital internally and at ever-increasing rates, a common combination among multi-baggers.

Another thing to note, Logwin has a high current liabilities to total assets ratio of 49%. This effectively means that suppliers (or short-term creditors) finance a large part of the business, so just be aware that this may introduce some elements of risk. Ideally, we would like this to decrease, as this would mean fewer risky bonds.

The Key Takeaway

Overall, it’s great to see Logwin reaping the rewards of past investments and growing its capital base. Given that the stock has returned a solid 81% to shareholders over the past three years, it’s fair to say that investors are starting to recognize these changes. That being said, we still think the promising fundamentals mean the company merits further due diligence.

Logwin has some risks, we have noticed 3 warning signs (and 1 which is a little obnoxious) that we think you should know about.
