Equity = equity cap + reserves
Equity equals Total assets - Total Liabilities, and ROE is net profit/equity. But I prefer to focus on ROA since it better reflects company investment performance. I used it for comparative analysis trading stocks with Hotforex.

To calculate ROE, analysts simply divide the company's net income by its average shareholders' equity. Since shareholders' equity is equal to assets minus liabilities, ROE is essentially a measure of the return generated on the net assets of the company.
