Return on investment (ROI) is common ratio measurement used for assessing the success or potential of an investment. Also known as "rate of return" or just "return," ROI is calculated by dividing profit (or loss) by the amount of the investment. When evaluating an opportunity, a company wants to be sure that it not only provides a positive ROI, but also that it offers a higher return than other alternatives. The accuracy of an ROI calculation is subject to the quality of the return and cost data used in its calculation.
ROI = Gain from investment – Cost of investment/Cost of investment
