  • Information content of dividends: a case of an emerging financial market
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Reza H. Chowdhury; Min Maung, Jenny Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - The main objective of this article is to examine the signaling and free cash flow hypotheses of dividends in the context of an emerging financial market.Design/methodology/approach - We use fundamental financial information of Chinese companies listed in the Shenzhen and Shanghai stock exchanges. We examine the impact of cash dividend payments on future profitability of individual firms with and without controlling for non-linearity in their earnings to test the signaling hypothesis. We also determine the characteristics of dividend paying firms to examine the free cash flow hypothesis.Findings - We find that while dividend increases by publicly listed Chinese firms are followed by increases in earnings in two subsequent years, such relationship does not exist in the case of dividend decreases. However, under the assumption of non-linearity of earnings, we find that neither dividend increases nor dividend decreases convey any valuable information about future changes in earnings of Chinese firms. Further, we find that firms with high cash holdings, large profitability, and high managerial efficiency are likely to pay dividends. We therefore conclude that announcements of cash dividend payments do not signal future performance but indicate good governance practices of publicly traded firms in China.Originality/value - This evidence is critical for potential foreign investors in their portfolio investment decisions, and for regulators in determining an efficient measure of corporate disclosure in China.

  • Does hedging in futures market benefit Indian farmers'
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Thiagu Ranganathan; Usha Ananthakumar
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - The national commodity exchanges were established in India in the year 2003-04. Though there has been a spectacular growth in trading volumes in these exchanges, participation of farmers in these markets has been very low. Efforts are being made to increase the awareness and participation of farmers in these markets. As such efforts are being made, it is critical to analyse the potential benefits from usage of the futures markets for the farmers. Our study performs such an analysis for soybean farmers in the Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh state in India.Design/methodology/approach - We estimate the optimal hedge ratios in futures markets for farmers in different scenarios characterised by varying levels of different parameters relevant to the farmer. For these optimal hedge ratios, we then estimate the benefits from hedging defined as the change in certainty equivalent income (CEI) due to hedging.Findings - Results indicate that the CEI gain due to hedging is positively related to the farmer’s risk aversion and inversely related to farmer’s price expectations and transaction costs. Also, only when the risk aversion is high, the CEI gain is positively related to the natural hedge. Thus, for a farmer with high risk aversion, hedging acts as a substitute to the natural hedge.Originality/value - This is the first study that analyses the hedging for farmer in the Indian context by considering yield risk while doing so. Also, our study establishes a relationship between risk aversion, the natural hedge and benefits from hedging in futures markets for the farmer.

  • Factors influencing on-market share repurchase decisions in Australia
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Subba Reddy Yarram
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This study examines factors influencing decision to repurchase shares on-market in Australia. The present study also examines the role of board size, board independence and CEO duality on the decision to repurchase shares on-market by Australian firms.Design/methodology/approach - This study blends the traditional motivations of share repurchases with the influences of governance. The sample consists of all non-financial firms included in the Australian All Ordinaries Index for the period 2004 to 2010. The repurchase sample consists of 104 repurchases undertaken by 62 firms. A probit panel model is employed to analyse the decision to repurchase shares on the market. To account for unobserved heterogeneity, random effects panel models are also used.Findings - Analyses of a sample of non-financial firms included in the All Ordinaries Index for the period 2004 to 2010 show that size is significantly positively correlated with the decision to repurchase shares, thus supporting the agency cost. Findings also support the undervaluation and signalling hypotheses. Similarly, there is evidence in support of the view that firms repurchase shares in order to reach their target optimal capital structure. The present study also finds a significant positive association between board independence and the decision to repurchase shares in Australia. Research limitations/implications - On-market share repurchases help firms to signal their future growth opportunities and resolve agency conflicts. Signals from repurchases also help markets discover the true fundamental values of firms. Governance plays an important role in improving the effectiveness of on-market share repurchases as independent directors provide both monitoring and discipline which helps to ensure that firms have valid motivations in undertaking share repurchases. Practical implications - These findings have implications for capital restructuring and governance policies. Principle-based governance frameworks that prevail in countries like Australia work as well as rule-based governance. Originality/value - This study highlights the complementary roles that financial policies and corporate boards play in corporate governance. Independent boards ensure that firms pursue appropriate financial policies that help resolve agency conflicts and information asymmetry problems.

  • The Eurozone crisis and its contagion effects on the European stock
           markets
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Wasim Ahmad; N R Bhanumurthy, Sanjay Sehgal
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This paper examines the contagion effects of Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy (GIPSI) and USA stock markets on seven Eurozone and six Non-Eurozone stock markets. Design/methodology/approach - In this paper, a dynamic conditional correlation model popularly known as DCC-GARCH model given by Engle (2002) is applied to estimate the dynamic conditional correlations across sample markets. Findings - Analyzing the Eurozone crisis period, the empirical results suggest that among GIPSI stock markets, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Ireland appear to be most contagious for Eurozone and Non-Eurozone markets. The study finds that France, Belgium, Austria and Germany in Eurozone and United Kingdom (UK), Sweden and Denmark in Non-Eurozone are strongly hit by the contagion shock.Practical implications - The findings of the study have significant implications for the concerned regulatory authorities as it may provide an important direction for further policy research with regard to financial integration in European Union (EU). From global investors’ perspective, the EU based diversification strategies seem to be inefficient especially during Eurozone crisis. Originality/value - To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study that examines the issue of financial contagion of Eurozone crisis for a large basket of stock markets of European countries comprising seven Eurozone and six Non-Eurozone markets for the period 2009–2012. The study employs Markov regime switching model to identify crisis period and utilizes the dynamic conditional correlation estimates of DCC-GARCH to examine the patterns of financial contagion. The finding of this study is quite interesting and makes different in several ways than existing studies in the literature.

  • Acquisition returns: does industry matter'
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Reza Yaghoubi; Stuart Locke, Jenny Gibb
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - This research illuminates the issue of whether there is a significant difference between long-term abnormal return of acquirers across industries, and which industries achieve better returns.Design/methodology/approach - This paper investigates whether there is a significant difference between abnormal return of acquirers across industries. The impact of timing of the deal on the acquirer returns is also studied in this paper. In the regression analysis we control for acquirer’s size along with a number of deal characteristics, such as method of payment, the mode of the acquisition, the diversifying nature of the deal, and value of the deal, in order to examine whether the differences in acquirer returns across industries persist when these factors are taken into account.Findings - The results of the study propose discrepancy in acquirers’ long-term abnormal returns across industries. While a number of industries such as petroleum and natural gas, insurance and machinery, experienced significantly positive abnormal performance, others like business services and medical equipment have demonstrated significantly negative long-term returns. Originality/value - This paper investigates the industry impact on performance of acquirers. The results of this research provide more comprehensive evidence from all of the industries that have been involved in mergers and acquisition deals during the period 1981 to 2007 so that the returns of different industries can be compared. Most importantly, the evidence rejects the equality of mean abnormal returns across industries at significant levels.

  • Contagion effects on stock and FX markets: A DCC analysis among USA and
           EMU
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Dimitrios I. Dimitriou; Theodore M. Simos
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose - we investigate the contagion effects of stock and FX markets for the USA and EMU during the US subprime crisis of 2007-2009. Design/methodology/approach - The data sample is daily comprising a weighted Morgan Stanley Capital Index (MSCI) for USA and EMU equity markets, as well as EUR/USD exchange rate and 3-month USA and EMU interest rate indices. We model simultaneously the dynamic conditional correlations (DCC) for the triplet: USA, EMU equity markets and euro-US dollar UIP via a multivariate GARCH(1,1)-DCC model. We also test for a level shift increase of DCCs during the crisis period by incorporating a dummy variable in a GARCH(1,1) model.Findings - Our results suggest the presence of contagion for the USA stock market and UIP. These result indicate that possibilities for portfolio diversification exist even in periods of severe financial turmoil. This can be explained by the different monetary policies that followed during the crisis. While USA increased liquidity through stimulus packages at the early 2009, EMU preferred a strict monetary policy and fiscal austerity measures. Consequently, the EUR/USD exchange rate where less volatile than the EMU equities, resulting in their weak co-movement.Originality/value - These findings confirm a specific pattern of contagion that provide important implications for international investors and policymakers.
