  • Agenda Entrance Complexity in International Accounting Standard Setting:
           The Case of IFRS for SMEs
    • Authors: Ronita Ram; Susan Newberry
      Abstract: Features of rational decision making (such as agenda entrance criteria and statement of jurisdiction) barely conceal the complexity of international accounting standard setting. In 2003, when the International Financial Reporting Standard for Small and Medium-sized Entities (IFRS for SMEs) project achieved agenda entrance, the International Accounting Standards Board's (IASB) jurisdiction was to develop, ‘a single set of … accounting standards … to help participants in the world's capital markets’. Drawing on interviewees’ recollections and other material, this study of how the project achieved agenda entrance finds within-IASB opposition to the project, arguing it was outside the IASB's jurisdiction that dissolved with the realisation that the IASB's jurisdiction would be changed to encompass the project.

  • Analyst Firm Coverage and Forecast Accuracy: The Effect of Regulation Fair
    • Authors: Yi Dong; Nan Hu, Xu Li, Ling Liu
      Abstract: In this study, we revisit the relationship between analyst firm coverage and forecast accuracy. In contrast to the proposed negative association in Clement () owing to the portfolio complexity effect, we hypothesize an ‘economy-of-scale effect’ that is likely to dominate when analysts rely mostly on public information. In support of the latter effect, we find a positive association between firm coverage and forecast accuracy after the enactment of Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg FD), which substantially reduces the flow of material private information to analysts. Such a result survives a battery of robustness analyses. We further show that, in the post-Reg FD period, covering more firms increases an analyst’s probability of being selected as a star analyst in the subsequent year. Overall, our findings highlight the importance of the information environment in shaping the economic link between an analyst’s firm coverage and forecast accuracy.

  • Impact of Segment-level Natural Resource Operational Risk Reporting on
           Earnings Predictions
    • Authors: Shuwen (Wendy) Cai; Jayne M. Godfrey, Robyn Moroney
      Abstract: Non-financial reports alert investors to operational risks associated with issues such as insufficient access to natural resource inputs and related costly interruptions to production, while segment-level reports alert investors to operational risk distribution across a firm. An important issue, to date unexplored, is how segment-level non-financial reporting has an impact on earnings predictions. We report the results of an experiment used to examine how mining company segment-level water reports affect investors’ earnings predictions, where water reports indicate whether the firm and its segments will have access to sufficient water to meet production needs. We find that investors do not change their earnings predictions when firm and segment-level reports indicate low water risk but they do revise down their earnings predictions when firm and segment-level water reports indicate high water risk. This is consistent with investors responding to the additional information provided in segment-level reports confirming that water risk is high across the firm. Regardless of whether firm-level water reports indicate high or low water risk, when segment-level reports indicate that one segment is low water risk and another is high water risk, investors revise down their earnings predictions. This is consistent with investors recognizing that natural resource operational risk concentration in one segment can affect earnings more than evenly-distributed risk. Overall, our findings suggest that belief-adjustment theory explains how investors react to prospective operational risk information contained in segment-level water reports according to the similarity of the segment-level risks, and that this information is factored into earnings predictions.

  • The Impact of CEO Narcissism on Earnings Management
    • Authors: Francesco Capalbo; Alex Frino, Ming Ying Lim, Vito Mollica, Riccardo Palumbo
      Abstract: We provide the first empirical test of the relation between CEO narcissism and earnings manipulation. We test the hypothesis that narcissistic leaders over-identify themselves with the organizations they lead and expend considerable effort to achieve their goals, including by engaging in unethical behaviour. Earnings announcements are highly anticipated information releases by organizations. They are a key performance indicator used to evaluate the performance of CEOs. This study examines the use of first person singular pronouns by CEOs in response to questions at analyst conferences to measure narcissism. We provide evidence that firms with narcissistic CEOs engage in accruals management to manage earnings positively, highlighting the important effect of CEO personality on accounting choices.

  • Discretionary Accruals: Earnings Management ... or Not'
    • Authors: Andrew B. Jackson
      Abstract: This paper discusses some limitations of discretionary accruals measures. While discretionary accruals are acknowledged to be noisy proxies for earnings management, they are still widely used in the literature. This paper attempts to explain from basic econometrics how discretionary accruals are estimated, and in doing so why they are inappropriate measures for earnings management. It is shown that decisions of peer firms will influence the regression coefficients, and hence residuals, in accruals models, which may lead to false conclusions about earnings management in other firms. This point is emphasized using an artificially constructed firm with no changes in its fundamental performance, and hence no discretion in its accruals. I also note concerns about the inferences, which are commonly not acknowledged in research. Finally, using Accounting and Auditing Enforcement Releases and Enron as examples, I demonstrate how discretionary accruals do not capture what literature often claims.

  • Why Do Overconfident REIT CEOs Issue More Debt' Mechanisms and Value
    • Authors: Kelvin Jui Keng Tan
      Abstract: This paper examines why overconfident CEOs issue more debt than equity within US Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and the value implications of this debt preference. Consistent with a demand-side story, the paper finds that overconfident CEOs choose to issue more debt than equity than their non-overconfident counterparts. The findings also rule out the supply-side story that overconfident CEOs are screened out of the equity market. CEO preference for debt is associated with a decline in shareholder wealth. Specifically, using an event study, the paper finds that overconfident CEOs suffer an approximately $67 million loss associated with debt issues in market capitalization. Further analysis suggests that the loss stems from the higher default risk induced by overconfident REIT CEOs’ debt preference. The demand-side explanation remains robust even after considering several CEO demographics, estimation methods, and the following five possible alternative drivers of the main results: (1) insider information; (2) risk tolerance; (3) past performance; (4) dividends; and (5) board pressure.

  • Can Real Estate Investors Avoid Specific Risk'
    • Authors: Andrew Baum; Nick Colley
      Abstract: Using modern portfolio theory, the traditional asset allocation process employs measurements of risk and return delivered by asset classes—for example, stocks, bonds, and real estate—to build efficient portfolios. To build efficient portfolios in practice using this type of analysis requires that the risk and return characteristics of the asset class can be replicated in real portfolios. This may be true of stocks and bonds, but is it true of real estate' Using new analysis coupled with previous UK-based research based on the uniquely rich MSCI (IPD) dataset for UK direct real estate, this paper compares the risk and return characteristics of real estate investment approaches (direct exposure, balanced and specialist unlisted funds, a multi-manager approach, and listed securities) relative to a UK market index. Based on a random stochastic simulation of historic performance data from 2003 to 2012, we conclude that the difficulty of diversifying away specific risk in such a lumpy asset class means that it is extremely difficult and/or costly to access or replicate direct property market returns. This suggests that an investor/manager setting out to deliver returns in line with a market index would have to demonstrate significant levels of skill. While listed real estate, which is more readily diversifiable, fails to deliver returns that are correlated with direct real estate in the short term (one to five years), it is clear that multi-manager strategies were able to deliver returns that more effectively replicated a direct benchmark. However, multi-manager fees negatively impacted on net returns. Specific risk can be avoided by real estate investors, but at a cost.

  • The Interrelationships between REIT Capital Structure and Investment
    • Authors: Jamie Alcock; Eva Steiner
      Abstract: We explore the interdependence of investment and financing choices in US listed Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) in the period 1973–2011. We find that the investment and financing choices of REITs are interdependent, but they are not made simultaneously. Our results suggest that investment determines leverage, but leverage has no apparent effect on investment decisions. Conversely, the debt-overhang conflict between shareholders and debt holders that theoretically drives the reverse influence of leverage on investment policy does not appear to filter through to the actual investment choices of REITs. Rather, we find that REIT managers utilize the maturity dimension of capital structure to mitigate potential investment distortions and ensure that investment remains on its value-maximizing path. We also present novel evidence on the role of investments in driving a wedge between REIT target leverage and actual leverage levels, and on the interplay between investments and leverage adjustments toward the target ratio in explaining REIT capital structure dynamics.

  • Investing in Real Estate Debt: Is it Real Estate or Fixed Income'
    • Authors: Maarten Spek
      Abstract: This paper will analyze the risk return profile of real estate debt. Using a Monte Carlo simulation model, different debt layers (mezzanine and senior) are analyzed and compared to real estate investments. The results clearly show that senior debt is not heavily correlated to real estate and therefore behaves more like fixed income and should be valued accordingly. Mezzanine, however, is correlated to real estate, especially the downside, and should clearly be underwritten as such. Furthermore, due to a scarcity of finance, debt can show superior risk return characteristics over direct real estate and private funds. This scarcity is likely during periods of thin liquidity and uncertain valuations on the balance sheet, as recently demonstrated by the global financial crisis.

  • The Contribution of Foreign Real Estate Investment to Housing Price Growth
           in Australian Capital Cities
    • Authors: Ross Guest; Nicholas Rohde
      Abstract: This paper models the effects of foreign investment in real estate on housing prices in Australia. We use a variety of panel data models that account for cross-sectional heterogeneity across Australian cities and find that increases in investment are significant predictors of rises in the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Residential Property Price Index. Our results are generally robust and suggest that increases in foreign investment account for between 20% and 30% of the rise in housing prices between 2004 and 2014 in Sydney and Melbourne. In other capital cities the effects appear to be negligible. Some policy implications of our findings are discussed.

  • Future Realized Return, Firm-specific Risk and the Implied Expected Return
    • Authors: Pengguo Wang
      Abstract: In this paper, we propose a novel approach to derive a firm-specific measure of expected return. It builds on recent accounting-based valuation models developed by Clubb (2013) and Ashton and Wang (2013). The measure is intrinsically linked to commonly used financial ratios, including book-to-market, (forward) earnings yield, and dividend-to-price, as well as growth and past returns. The empirical evidence shows that it is significantly positively associated with future realized stock returns and also significantly correlated with commonly used risk characteristics in a theoretically predictable manner. The results are likely to be of interest to practitioners and managers in making capital allocation decisions and to academics in need of proxies for firms’ discount rates and expected returns.

  • Noise Momentum Around the World
    • Authors: Charlie X. Cai; Robert Faff, Yongcheol Shin
      Abstract: We argue that arbitrageurs will strategically limit their initial investment in an arbitrage opportunity in anticipation of further mispricing caused by the deepening of noise traders' misperceptions. Such ‘noise momentum’ is an important determinant of the overall arbitrage process. We design an empirical strategy to capture noise momentum in a two-period generalized error correction model. Applying it to a wide range of international spot-futures market pairs, we document pervasive evidence of noise momentum around the world.

  • Does Ownership Identity Matter' A Meta-analysis of Research on Firm
           Financial Performance in Relation to Government versus Private Ownership
    • Authors: Kun Tracy Wang; Greg Shailer
      Abstract: We examine whether reported ownership–performance relations systematically differ for government versus private ownership by integrating the diverse empirical results for listed corporations in emerging markets. Our meta-analysis confirms popular perceptions that, compared to private ownership, government ownership is associated with inferior performance. We find that, on average, the underlying ownership–performance relation is negative for government ownership and positive for private ownership, and the difference between these relations is significant. We also find that the positive private ownership–performance relation is stronger for institutional/foreign ownership compared to family/management ownership. Further analysis shows that negative (positive) government (private) ownership and performance relations have weakened (strengthened) over time. Our assessment of the sources of heterogeneity shows that reported relations are biased by estimation methods that fail to adequately control for endogeneity. Our results suggest that the nature of ownership–performance relations in emerging markets remains very dynamic and warrants ongoing research interest.

      Abstract: Comparability indices summarize the level of comparability between companies at a national and international level, an issue of importance to investors, regulators, and standard setters. Comparability indices can identify areas where comparability is low and where comparability is deteriorating. Furthermore, they can be used to quantify the extent to which initiatives such as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are successful in raising comparability between company accounts. Despite past literature emphasizing how factors other than country influence accounting methods used by companies, current comparability indices ignore these other factors. This paper introduces new national and international indices within the T index framework to fill this gap in the literature. Formula for the new national and international indices, and their standard errors, are provided. An example using European data is used to demonstrate the calculations and illustrate the importance of controlling for these firm specific factors.

  • What is an Investment Project's Implied Rate of Return'
    • Authors: Graham Bornholt
      Abstract: How to measure a project's implied rate of return has long been an unresolved problem, except for some special cases. This paper derives return on present cost (ROPC) as the correct measure of an investment project's implied rate of return. The IRR is a biased measure except for projects classified as simple projects, and this bias is likely to be substantial in many real-world applications. Thus while net present values should be used to determine whether to accept/reject projects, I recommend that analysts use ROPC in place of the IRR as a measure of a project's true rate of return.

  • Open Market Share Repurchases in Germany: A Conditional Event Study
    • Authors: Christian Andres; André Betzer, Markus Doumet, Erik Theissen
      Abstract: We analyze the decision to announce an open market share repurchase and the share price reaction to the announcement. We use a conditional estimation approach, which takes into account that the repurchase decision is made rationally and that, consequently, there is a potential selection bias. This approach requires a ‘non-event sample’ of firms that could reasonably be expected to announce a repurchase but did not. The specific institutional rules for share repurchases in Germany allow us to construct such a sample. We find that a conditional approach yields results that are qualitatively comparable but differ in detail from those obtained using a non-conditional approach. We confirm earlier findings of negative share price performance prior to the repurchase announcement and positive and significant announcement day abnormal returns. The results of our probit models are consistent with the free cash flow hypothesis and provide at least partial support for the rent extraction, signalling, and capital structure hypothesis. The results of the cross-sectional regressions provide support for the signalling hypothesis once we control for selection bias.
