The purpose of this research was to understand the different effects that supply chain disasters can have on the stock price of a company. After extensive research, including analysis of the pre and post returns, betas, standard deviation, Treynor ratios and Sharpe ratios we were able to understand the varying effects that supply chain disasters have on a company, most importantly, its stakeholders. Supply chain disasters can, over night, reduce years worth of stock prices. The result is typically the need to redesign its supply chain processes and recovery initiatives in an attempt to restore market position and become less static and more adaptable. This project demonstrates the importance of considering elements like capacity, process, and efficiency when designing a supply chain.
