  • Text Mining and Reporting Quality in German Banks - A Cooccurrence and
           Sentiment Analysis

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Accounting and Finance  Volume  6  Number  2  David Fritz   and Eugen Tȍws   A bank's annual risk report intends to reduce the information asymmetry between the bank and its stakeholders. Using automated text mining measures, we assess the quality of the reports in terms of their fulfillment of regulatory requirement and identify its main drivers in a panel regression. On a set of 343 risk reports from 30 German banks between 2002 and 2013, we further perform a cooccurrence and sentiment analysis and determine several additional characteristics of the reports' text. Our methods detect discrepancies for the reports of distressed and non-distressed banks and also for different types of banks. Some of these discrepancies might indicate an intended concealment of certain risks of a bank. We find that our text mining measures explain the variance of the reporting quality to a large extent. The number of words is an important factor for the determination of risk reporting quality. The share of positive words in a report reduces its reporting quality on average.

  • Analysis of Accounting Reforms in the Public Sector of Pakistan and
           Adoption of Cash Basis IPSAS

    • Abstract: Publication date:  May 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Accounting and Finance  Volume  6  Number  2  Miraj Javed   and Wang Zhuquan   Streamlining the accounting system in accordance with "world's best practices" will result in consistency and transparency in the financial management of the country, ensure good governance, boost the confidence of investors, and contribute to strengthening the economy. The public sector accounting system in Pakistan has been overhauled recently. The reforms have been implemented by the Federal Government of Pakistan (GOP), with the assistance of World Bank, through Project to Improve Financial Reporting and Auditing (PIFRA). This study describes the accounting reforms implemented by the GOP and the adoption of cash basis International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) for financial reporting. We first describe the contents of the accounting reforms implemented in all levels of the country beginning in the 1990s and briefly introduce cash basis IPSAS. Second, we assess the compliance of Pakistan's accounting system with cash basis IPSAS and IPSAS-2 cash flow statement. Finally, we conclude that the financial statements of the GOP comply with the requirements of cash basis IPSAS. This study recommends transitioning from cash to accrual accounting system because Pakistan has reflected a satisfactory margin after the new reforms have been implemented.

  • The Impact of Different Market Transparency Standards on the Success of
           Momentum Strategies Using the Example of the German Stock Market

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Accounting and Finance  Volume  6  Number  1  Katharina Beyenburg   Dirk Braun   and Lina Kuckelkorn   This study primarily focuses on the explanation of momentum effects regarding different transparency standards of particular stock segments. Based on theories of efficient markets and information diffusion it can be expected that a momentum can rather be observed in those stock segments which do not require high transparency obligations. Regarding the results of this study on the effect of transparency, no significant correlation can be proven for the intensity of transparency obligations and the level of the momentum. Hence, the theory on the intensity of transparency obligations affecting the level of the momentum has to be rejected. However, it has to be pointed out that in contrary to the theoretical assumption, the momentum of Prime Standard has not only been most constant but also highest. Especially in times of strong market turbulences, high volatility and uncertainties in the market, investors seem to invest in titles which show highest transparency and for which a lot of public information is accessible. Thus, they regard stocks of Prime Standard as security values.
