It is a good measure of a company's recent performance, but several factors could affect earnings and sales in the near future.

A relatively high ROCE shows Southwest Airlines is potentially operating at a higher level of efficiency than other companies in its industry.

In Southwest Airlines's case, the ROCE ratio shows the amount of assets may not be helping the company achieve higher returns. Investors may take this into account before making any long-term financial decisions.
