Year after year, managers strive to improve financial performance and firm value by marketing actions such as new product introductions and promotional incentives. The current study investigates the short-term and long-term impact of such marketing actions on financial metrics, including top-line, bottom-line and stock market performance.

Managers may use these results to justify product innovation efforts and to weight short-term and long-term consequences of promotional incentives.
