The output variables used in this research are: total revenue, net profit, return on equity (ROE), return on assets (ROA), return on investment (ROI), dividend yield ratio and asset turnover ratio. The analysis results shows that six retail companies are “efficient” in its operation (efficiency score of 1.00) , namely; Carrefour, Costco, Kroger Company, Home Depot Inc, JD.com Inc Adr and Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd ADR. Therefore, these companies are considered the most competitive in its operation strategy in the current global market, whereas there are four retail companies falls into category of “inefficient” (efficiency score < 1.00), namely;  Walmart, Amazon.com Inc, Tesco PLC and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.
