- I suspect that there are other incentives for companies to improve their corporate governance practices (especially board practices) than improved performance (improved ROA and ROE).
- Companies that improved ROA used cash raised on B/S from increased profits to return profits to shareholders through increased dividends, but still lacked conviction in using cash for future growth.
- It is inferred that companies with higher ROE tend to use cash to buy back their own shares.
