Profits on the long run
Ort: Verl.:
Are there peristent differences in profitability across firms? If so, what accounts for them? This book answers these questions using data for the 1000 largest U.S. manufacturing firms in 1950 and 1972. It finds that there are peristent differences in profitability and market power across large U.S. companies. Companies with peristently high profits are found to have high market shares and sell differentiated products. Mergers do not result in synergistic increases in profitability, but they do have an averging effect. Companies with above normal profits have their profits lowered by mergers. Companies with initially below normal profits have them raised. In addition, the influence of other variables on long run profitability, including risk, sales, diversification, growth and managerial control, is explored. The implications of antitrust policy are likewise addressed. (Verlag)
