Trends of globalization of the world economy are opening up many new opportunities for the companies. At the same time globalisation is increasingly wiping out local monopolies and exposing individual companies to international competition. Many companies have therefore difficulties to compete in such an environment, especially if they are using primarily price or technology as their competitive advantage.

Capital market is one of the most important elements of any healthy, well-functioning economy. The volume and value of executed capital market transactions are affected not only by the number of issuers and investors’ willingness to buy, but also by economic development in the broadest sense.
The aim of the paper is to evaluate whether there is a functional dependency between the used finance sources and reported rate of return on equity in the selected sample of companies from the area of building of the Visegrád Group, and to do such evaluation on the basis of a performed analysis. We will also examine the reverse relation, i.e. how the rate of use of external finance sources affects the return on equity. The attention was paid to the area of building, as the area is considered as the indicator of development of the economic cycle.
