For the third year in a row, the Supply Chain Top 25 portfolio of companies (as ranked by AMR Research) outperformed the market, this time by a wide margin. The average total return of the Top 25 portfolio for 2007 is 17.89 percent, compared with returns of 6.43 percent for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 3.53 percent for the S&P 500. Clearly, this is a group of companies that excels, strongly weathering the ups and downs seen in the market this year.
The Top 25 is an annual ranking that calls out those large manufacturers and retailers that display superior supply chain performance, capabilities, and leadership. These are the companies that are furthest along in achieving the ideal of a highly coordinated, demand-driven network that delivers shareholder and community value.
The analysis takes basic public data as a foundation--return on assets, inventory turns and growth--and layers on top of it expert and peer assessments of the future leadership potential of each company.
