According to a research done on various companies it was noticed and identified and accordingly the two least profitable and the two most profitable companies from each sector of the business were listed and are therefore shown. It has been found that as a reference, the average earnings of a big firm in corporate America is 0 (zero) Economic Margin, which is also called as “break-even business”. The research has also shown that companies which have continuously positive EMs which are also expected to increase their EMs in the future approaches to outperform firms which have negative or declining EMs.[ad#ad-4]
