It examines Return on Equity (ROE) and Return on Stock (ROS) of the top two-hundred Canadian companies in market capitalization on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) each year in the past six years by using the data from Canadian Business magazine and relates these performance measures to the practices of the companies’ top management.
