  • Inventory accumulation, location and financial structure: evidence from
           China
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Pu Liu; Yingying Shao)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to empirically examine the relationship between firms' inventory accumulation and financial structure. It further investigates the impact of geographical locations on firms' inventory investment decision after controlling for firms' financial structure. Design/methodology/approach – This paper uses a large panel of over 1,400 Chinese listed firms that issued. Findings – Firms' financial structure, as reflected in the availability of internal and external capital, has significant impact on firms' inventory decisions. In addition, it is found that firms headquartered in major economic development areas (EDA) tend to have slower inventory growth than firms located in rural areas. Moreover, the results reveal that locating in major EDA facilitates firms' stockpiling of inventories through easy access to external capital. Originality/value – This study not only contributes to the studies on the interactions between firms' location and their financing and investment policy, but also improves our understanding about emerging markets such as China.

  • Allocation to industry portfolios under Markov switching returns
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Deniz Kebabci Tudor)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the effects of parameter uncertainty in the returns process with regime shifts on optimal portfolio choice over the long run for a static buy-and-hold investor who is investing in industry portfolios. Design/methodology/approach – This paper uses a Markov switching model to model returns on industry portfolios and propose a Gibbs sampling approach to take into account parameter uncertainty. This paper compares the results with a linear benchmark model and estimates without taking into account parameter uncertainty. This paper also checks the predictive power of additional predictive variables. Findings – Incorporating parameter uncertainty and taking into account the possible regime shifts in the returns process, this paper finds that such investors can allocate less in the long run to stocks. This holds true for both the NASDAQ portfolio and the individual high tech and manufacturing industry portfolios. Along with regime switching returns, this paper examines dividend yields and Treasury bill rates as potential predictor variables, and conclude that their predictive effect is minimal: the allocation to stocks in the long run is still generally smaller. Originality/value – Studying the effect of regime switching behavior in returns on the optimal portfolio choice with parameter uncertainty is our main contribution.

  • Macro drivers of Australian housing affordability, 1985-2010: An
           autoregressive distributed lag approach
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Andrew Worthington; Helen Higgs)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – Model the drivers of Australian housing affordability and forecast equilibrium affordability. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach – Uses autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) approach to model housing affordability measured by the Housing Industry Association's Housing Affordability Index (HAI) and the housing price-earnings multiplier (HPE). Six sets of explanatory variables, including housing finance, housing construction activity and costs, economic growth, population, alternative investments and taxation. Findings – Primary long-run drivers are housing finance, dwelling approvals and financial assets. Economic and population growth only have a short-run influence, while housing taxation has limited impact in long run. Forecasts indicate long-run HAI equilibrium values of 109 (above the historical minimum of 107) and a HPE of seven (below the recent historical maximum of 8.2). Research limitations/implications – Reduced form model encompassing both demand and supply factors involves complicated interpretation given direct and indirect effects on affordability. Analysis at national level ignores regional impacts that may also affect housing affordability. Practical implications – The impact of the low rate of new dwelling approvals (public and private sector in the long run and public sector in the short run) points to a persistent structural gap between the demand and supply of housing. Strong economic and population growth often blamed for the worsening of housing affordability, at least in the 2000s, has no impact at the aggregate national level. Originality/value – Only known paper to provide quantitative estimates of macro drivers of Australian housing affordability over a long period using alternative measures of relative housing affordability.

  • Stock market linkages among new EMU members and the euro area:
           Implications for financial integration and portfolio diversification
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Christian Dunis; Georgios Sermpinis, Maria Ferenia Karampelia)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to focus on the empirical dimension of financial integration among the five newest members of the European Monetary Union (Cyprus, Estonia, Malta, Slovakia and Slovenia) and the euro area. The main objective is to study the level and the speed of integration between the stock markets of those European Union (EU) member states and the rest of the euro area, assessing in this way the role that the EU enlargement, the drive towards European Monetary Union and the actual adoption of the euro play in the process of European financial market integration. Design/methodology/approach – This study will exclusively test the integration of the stock markets of EU member states that joined in 2004, when the EU expanded, but are already members of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). Since there is limited evidence on the effects of EU and EMU enlargements or their announcements, it will be a useful addition to the examination of this issue. Given the small size of those emerging stock markets and the fact that they are part of a stable and well-regulated system, the degree to which they are integrated has implications for investors' portfolio allocation decisions, as they may offer diversification benefits without extreme risks. The case of integration will be examined using various econometric methodologies, two of which (beta- and sigma-convergence) have been given less formal attention and their application is rare, so as to detect both long- and short-run interdependencies and achieve robust results. Findings – The findings indicate an increasing degree of integration for Malta and Slovenia, while Estonia appears segmented. Cyprus and Slovakia exhibited a degree of integration after their accession into EU but this trend changes after they adopted the euro. Overall, the integration process accelerated after the accession in the EU but EMU does not seem to have the same positive impact on it. Originality/value – Compared with previous studies, the authors' apply the concept of beta- and sigma-convergence, a methodology that will help us identify the speed of integration. Moreover, the period under study includes the recent crisis: this allows us to see if the worsened economic environment has had effect on the level and speed of integration of the countries under study. In the end, it is worth noting that previous studies focused on either advanced markets or neighbouring countries or states with a common history. This alone can create a level of interdependence between the countries under study and bias the results. In this paper, the markets under study have almost nothing in common except their small size and the fact that they are members of the EMU.

  • Impact of audit quality and ownership structure on the bias and accuracy
           of earnings forecasts issued in IPO prospectuses: Evidence from a frontier
           market
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (A.K.M. Waresul Karim; Kamran Ahmed, Tanweer Hasan)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of audit quality and ownership structure on the degrees of accuracy and bias in earnings forecasts issued in initial public offering (IPO) prospectuses in a frontier market, Bangladesh. Design/methodology/approach – The paper uses both univariate and multivariate tests on the sample of 75 IPOs. The paper employs the tests to see the association between the degree of forecast bias and three corporate governance variables. Findings – The results reveal that the magnitude of earnings forecast bias is significantly explained by issuer, auditor reputation, proportions of capital raised from domestic as well as foreign investors, and whether the IPO firm is a start-up venture. Underwriter prestige, length of the issuing firms' operating history, leverage, whether the firm went public during a stock market boom, and forecast horizon do not appear to be statistically significant in explaining the degree of forecast bias. Originality/value – Although auditor reputation and the proportion of equity retained by pre-IPO owners have been investigated in several studies on IPO forecast accuracy and/or bias, no study has attributed them to corporate governance as a whole by combining auditor reputation, and ownership categories held by small private investors and foreign portfolio investors.
