The World's Most Innovative Companies list consists of firms that investors feel are most likely to come up with the next big innovation.  Companies are ranked by their innovation premium: the difference between their market capitalization and the net present value of cash flows from existing businesses (based on a proprietary algorithm from Credit Suisse HOLT). The difference between them is the 'bonus' given by equity investors on the educated hunch that the company will continue to come up with profitable new growth. To be included on the list, firms need seven years of financial data and US $10 billion in market capitalization.
