According to Benzinga Pro, during Q1, SPX (NYSE:SPXC) earned $11.40 million, a 90.0% increase from the preceding quarter. SPX's sales decreased to $307.10 million, a 12.26% change since Q4. In Q4, SPX earned $6.00 million, whereas sales reached $350.00 million.

Why Is ROIC Significant?

Return on Invested Capital is a measure of yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital invested by a business. Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in a company's ROIC. A higher ROIC is generally representative of successful growth of a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share in the future. A low or negative ROIC suggests the opposite. In Q1, SPX posted an ROIC of 0.84%.

Keep in mind, while ROIC is a good measure of a company's recent performance, it is not a highly reliable predictor of a company's earnings or sales in the near future.
