Return on Investment (ROI) (also referred to as the Rate of Return or Rate of Profit) is a simple financial indicator to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiency of a number of different investments.
ROI is a measure of the money gained from an investment compared to the amount of money invested.
ROI = (gain from investment - cost of investment) / cost of investment
