Do innovations really pay off? Total stock market returns to innovation

Categories: Articles in English, Processes, Strategy, Technology

The current study develops a new metric to assess the payoff to investing in innovation. The method is based on a computation of the abnormal stock market return to a firm on the day it announces an innovation event. The study is based on an analysis of 5,481 innovation events from 69 firms across 7 markets, during the period 1977-2006. The study finds that, contrary to widely held beliefs, the stock market responds strongly and promptly to investments in innovation several years ahead of the launch of a new product. The findings may help managers more accurately assess the total market value of a proposed innovation or innovation project, well ahead of launch, as well as the potential returns for particular innovation activities.
