How the ROI calculator works
Our ROI calculator takes raw financial information from your investments and translates them into two outputs: your final ROI percentage, and your annual ROI percentage. This helps you see how an investment performs over time and can help you hone your investment strategy.
Why should I use it?
One of the most powerful and important concepts to understand in economics is opportunity cost: the loss of potentially larger gains when you choose one less profitable investment option instead of a more profitable one. By precisely calculating the ROI of a given investment vehicle, you can not only see the raw size of your returns, but also figure out if you might be able to grab bigger gains by investing in a different asset.
What is ROI?
Return on Investment (ROI) measures the performance of an investment, determining how much you stand to make by investing in an asset over a given time period. To calculate ROI, divide your return by the cost of the investment. The result is then expressed as a percentage, or a ratio.
