ABSTRACT
Cumulative abnormal returns and buy-and-hold abnormal returns are computed for a sample of companies recognized by Fortune as the ‘50 Best Companies for Minorities’. These are compared to two benchmarks: the CRSP valueweighted index and portfolios of firms of similar size and book-to-market equity. Returns are also tested in time-series regressions against the Fama and French (1993)three-factor and Cahart (1997)four-factor model. Results show that diverse firms earn higher raw returns. They also earn significantly higher risk-adjusted returns during the year after listing. No significant performance over longer periods of time is found.
