RESEARCH OVERVIEW:

  • Report Details: This report is based on analysis of financial balance sheet and income statement data for the period of 2000-2013 as available and cooperative research conducted with Arizona State University.
  • Objective: To determine a resiliency ranking for companies based upon their performance balancing inventory turns and operating margin over the period 2000-2013 as available.
  • Hypothesis: The resiliency ranking explains the tightness of the pattern of performance at the intersection of inventory turns and operating margin. Companies with lower values display a tighter pattern and more resiliency and consistency in results. Companies should take a long term perspective on managing performance of their resiliency ranking at the intersection of inventory turns and operating margin.
