Retained Earnings Growth

Retained Earnings are the percentage of net earnings a company retains to be reinvested in its core business or to pay debt. If this number is consistently growing, it shows that a company has been consistently profitable and is in a strong position to invest for the future. This can be done by buying new machinery, investing in research and development or a number of other options.

By effectively using these earnings, a company can greatly improve their long-term economic picture. Look at the Management tab to see how well management has been able to leverage capital to deliver strong returns.
