Considering a public retail company existing for more than 47 years, would you suggest 23.12% to be a good percentage return on equity? I know that it is currently better than what banks can offer, but why would you personally suggest it?

Here's the numbers:
avg. equity = 0.5(2 416 000 000+2 404 100 000) = 2 410 060 000

% Return on Equity
(profit after tax/avg. equity)x100/1 = (557 100 000)/(2 410 050 000)×100/1 = 23.12%

    How does "better than what banks can offer" fit into the calculation of a company's finances? – JB King May 4 '14 at 17:32

Yes definitely

Warren Buffet averaged returns of only around 21% throughout his 40 years in business.

ROE of 23% is probably more than double the ROE of most companies , whats more as the saying goes its easier to grow sales from 1 million to 100 million than to grow sales from 100 million to 10 billion
