Abstract: This paper examines the performance of 157 of the 400 largest nonfinancial firms in Brazil in 2018. The metric used is the creation of value for their shareholders, represented by the difference between return on assets (operating income/assets) (ROA) and the weighted average of the opportunity cost of debt and equity (WACC) used to finance those assets. Among the 157 firms, one finds 66 privatelyowned and 91 publicly-owned companies. Of those, the management of 18 privately-owned (27,3%) and 13 publicly-owned firms (14,3%) were able to produce value for shareholders, because ROA > WACC. Therefore, this positive outcome occurred in less than half of the companies surveyed, and it is apparent that the proportion of such an outcome in private firms was higher than that for public firms.
