A highly-respected public recognition of supply chain management (SCM) excellence is the Supply Chain Top 25 List, published annually by AMR Research. By employing event study method, this study extensively examined stock market reactions to annual announcements of the AMR Supply Chain Top 25 List, under various market scenarios. The results showed that SCM leading firms consistently outperform market portfolios around annual press-release dates. The mean abnormal returns observed in the event window (0, +1) were positive and statistically significant. In addition, the findings were robust across different estimation models and various market indexes adopted in the event study. At the same time, it is worth noting that the event effect on market performance was temporary and diminished within 5 trading days. This study makes contributions to the growing body of knowledge on the strategic values of firm reputation in general, and for SCM excellence in particular.
