The Hewitt Associates Ownership Intensity and Firm Performance Study found that from 1995 – 2000, the top half of companies surveyed had an average cumulative shareholder return that was 16% higher than the rest of the 173 companies. In comparing the companies in the top 25% to the bottom 25%, the study found a return gap of more than 65% on average.
Hewitt surveyed 173 major corporations across the nation, ranking them using Hewitt’s “Ownership Intensity Index”, which is the ratio of a firm’s stock-based incentive compensation to its market value.
The Hewitt Associates Ownership Intensity and Firm Performance Study is the first study to not only look.
