ABSTRACT
Results of the study of 124 major U.S. firms, suggest that U-form firms invest more heavily in R&D than M-form firms. Further, dominant business firms invested more in R&D than either related or unrelated business firms. Finally, the relationship between R&D intensity and market performance was negative for related and unrelated firms.
