ABSTRACT
The article reports on U. S. manufacturing firms and the effects of multinationality in the performance of companies. It discusses the role of research and development in increasing performance. The study examines the performances of several U. S. manufacturing firms and argues that multinationality has varied effects on performance. It uses the internalization theory to explain the relationship between multinationality and market-based performance. Multinationality along with investments in research and development also contribute to better performance.
