The W Report™ series identifies companies projected to “win” more customers and generate economic profit by utilizing patented methods (US Patent 6,658,391) from wRatings. Rankings use an algorithmic formula originally developed in 1999 and then refined in February 2004. The W Score™ is a percentile ranking of companies using a sliding scale of historical economic profit (2003-2007) and current year's (Q1-2008) total moat score. Economic profit is a company's return on invested capital in excess of weighted average cost of capital. Total moats are from a quantitative consumer interview database and are the sum score of nine areas of competitive advantage. The more moats and higher total moat score indicate a greater likelihood of sustaining a competitive advantage. To be considered in the rankings, companies must have either a dominant market share or wide recognition among the general U.S. population and have publicly available financial data. Industries covered include Automotive, Consumer Goods, Electronics, Financials, Health Care, Home, Media, Restaurants, Retail, Telecom, Travel and Utilities & Gas.
