To find a multi-bagger stock, what are the underlying trends we should look for in a business? 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 the ROCE trend of Champion Iron (ASX:CIA) 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 Champion Iron, this is the formula:

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

0.31 = CA$556m ÷ (CA$2.0b - CA$223m) (Based on the trailing twelve months to June 2022).

Therefore, Champion Iron has an ROCE of 31%. In absolute terms that's a great return and it's even better than the Metals and Mining industry average of 8.8%.

What Can We Tell From Champion Iron's ROCE Trend?

We're delighted to see that Champion Iron is reaping rewards from its investments and is now generating some pre-tax profits. About five years ago the company was generating losses but things have turned around because it's now earning 31% on its capital. And unsurprisingly, like most companies trying to break into the black, Champion Iron is utilizing 1,023% more capital than it was five years ago. This can indicate that there's plenty of opportunities to invest capital internally and at ever higher rates, both common traits of a multi-bagger.

Since the stock has returned a staggering 400% to shareholders over the last five years, it looks like investors are recognizing these changes.

    You get up and keep trying.
    Michael Corleone from The Godfather II disagreed with that.

    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    Today, calling someone a Jack of all trades is usually a jab because it implies that their knowledge is superficial.
    For example.
    The term aphorism originates from late Latin aphorismus and Greek aphorismos.
    Take this proverb, for example.
    Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
    Examples of Aphorism in Film
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    That’s not what you expected, was it.
    The Purpose & Function of Aphorism
    Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.
    They’re in social media captions all over the web.
    Your wish is my command.

    Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
    Another aphorism that’s adapted is, Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
    There is no try.
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    Finally, Actions speak louder than words is another classic example.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    For example.
    But not today.

    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
    The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
    Build a storyline around that saying.
    Practice what you preach.

    Examples of Aphorism in Politics
    Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
    People often use this quote when discussing health, but Franklin was talking about fire safety.
    Not so much.
    Your stories can benefit from this method too.
    An aphorism is a literary device that uses a short, clever saying to express a general truth.
    Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
    Speaking of being safe, that’s another aphorism example that you’ve probably heard before.
    See for yourself.
    Sandys said, Honestie the best policie, which in modern English is…
    It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
    But these days.
    Give it a try!
    Don’t judge a book by its cover.
