Return on investment

(ROI)
An economic indicator that is used to evaluate the effectiveness of an investment. It is calculated as the ratio of the amount gained or lost relative to the amount invested. Simple ROI analyses do not take the time value of money into account; dynamic ROI analyses recognize that the value of money changes over time.
