Abstract

Economic value added (EVA) is a well-known and widely used measure of operating performance. Bacidore, Boquist, Milbourn, and Thakor (1997) claimed in a recent "Financial Analysts Journal" article that a modified version of EVA, refined economic value added (REVA), is theoretically superior to EVA. Actually, EVA is theoretically superior to REVA.
