Pirelli is among the top 10 Italian companies to have recorded the largest share earnings in 2010. That is one of the results of research carried out by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the world’s leading company in business strategy consultancy. The classification was drawn up on the basis of total shareholder return (value created) of over 3,000 companies quoted in 40 countries that belong to 37 different industrial sectors.
Different from 2009, on a world level the industrialised countries dominated the classification by taking seven of the top 10 positions. The top positions went in this order to Novo Nordisk (pharmaceuticals), Volkswagen (cars) and Ecopetrol (oil and gas).
But at the head of the Italian top 10 is Exor with +86% in 2009. Second place went to Tod’s (+62%), followed by Fiat, Saipem and Pirelli, which recorded +44% compared to the previous year.
Research also brought to light the fact that the industrial sectors with the top share earnings in 2010 remain unchanged: mining, the oil industry, industrial engineering and car manufacturing.
