  • Determinants of the successful single stock futures market in Thailand

    • Abstract: Thailand’s Single Stock Futures market has grown recently over the last ten years, evidenced by its 8th place in top 10 exchanges in the world by number of single stock futures traded in 2021. Since the main goal of any futures exchange is to list a successful contact, it is important to demonstrate the determinants of the success of Single Stock Futures. This study uses the sample consisting of 89 companies, on which stocks are underlying for Single Stock Futures in the period between January 2017 and December 2021, and finds that the best fitting method in modelling determinants of the success of Single Stock Futures is the fixed effects model. As expected, the results confirm the existence of a positive relationship between characteristics of underlying stock, including size, volatility, and liquidity, and the successful futures contract. Furthermore, the findings show the negative effects of the first year of contract trading and the tightened daily price limit of Single Stock Futures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation on contract success.AcknowledgmentThe author is grateful to the Department of Economics, Faculty of Economics, Kasetsart University for financial support to conduct this research.

  • The influence of technological innovative capabilities on firm
           performance: Moderating effect of strategic agility

    • Abstract: This study investigates the influence of technological innovative capabilities (TICs) on firm performance (FP) in the IT sector, with strategic agility as a moderator variable. This paper analyzes the TICs at the firm level in the service sector using the functional approach. An online structured questionnaire was adapted and refined to collect the required information on the influence of TICs dimensions on FP in the IT sector to achieve the objectives. The unit of analysis consists of top management staff and heads of departments from IT firms in Amman, Jordan. A sample of 67 IT firms was selected, and 300 questionnaires were distributed. A total number of returned responses was 223, producing a 74% response rate. Structural equation modeling was used to test the hypotheses. The revealed findings show that learning capability, marketing capability, organizational capability, and strategic planning capability had a significant influence on FP, whereas resource allocation capability was not significant. In addition, multiple hierarchical regression was used to test the moderating effect of strategic agility on the relationship between TICs and FP. Revealed results of the overall model to examine the moderating effect show that strategic agility is not significant in moderating the relationship between TICs dimensions and FP.

  • High-frequency volatility connectedness and time-frequency correlation
           among Chinese stock and major commodity markets around COVID-19

    • Abstract: This study examines the connectedness and time-frequency correlation of price volatility across the Chinese stock market and major commodity markets. This paper applies a DCC-GARCH-based volatility connectedness model and the cross-wavelet transform to examine the transmission of risk patterns in these markets before and during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as the leading lag relationship and synergistic movements between different time domains. First, the findings of the DCC-GARCH connectedness model show dynamic total spillovers are stronger after the COVID-19 outbreak. Chinese stocks and corn have been net spillovers in the system throughout the sample period, but the Chinese market plays the role of a net receiver of volatility relative to other markets (net pairwise directional connectedness) in the system as a whole. In terms of wavelet results, there is some connection to the connectedness results, with all commodity markets, except soybeans and wheat, showing significant dependence on Chinese equities in the medium/long term following the COVID-19 outbreak. Secondly, the medium-to long-term frequency of the crude oil market and copper market are highly dependent on the Chinese stock market, especially after the COVID-19 outbreak. Meanwhile, the copper market is the main source of risk for the Chinese stock market, while the wheat market sends the least shocks to the Chinese stock market. The findings of this paper will have a direct impact on a number of important decisions made by investors and policymakers.

  • The relationship between the short-term and long-term Phillips curve for
           the Czech Republic

    • Abstract: Inflation in Czech Republic in 2021 significantly deviated from the tolerance band. Although the economic results are lagging behind expectations, inflationary pressures, mainly from abroad, are still intensifying. At the same time, the rapid rise in consumer prices affects not only households and consumers, but also business and companies. As is known, a very important tool for understanding inflation is the Phillips curve, which shows the relationship between two variables, the first one is inflation and the second one is unemployment. The aim of this paper is to research the relationship between the short-term Philips curves and long-term Phillips curves for the Czech Republic. For this purpose, data on the inflation rate and unemployment rate between 1993 and 2018 were contrasted based on data published by the Czech Statistical Office. The short-term Phillips curve was assumed under adaptive expectation conditions, whereby a regression analysis was undertaken using SPSS statistical software to determine suitable values for the corresponding parameters. In addition, and in accordance with the trend figure and data description figure for both the unemployment rate variable and inflation rate variable, the basis for the development of the long-term Phillips curve is described. Subsequently, it is concluded that a mutually substitutive relationship exists with regards to the short-term and that the long-term is an irregular circular curve that moves in a clockwise direction.

  • The role of operational innovation and external environment on the
           relationship between service quality and marketing performance in the
           hotel business

    • Abstract: Economic sustainability allows hotel customers and other stakeholders to profit from hospitality services. Hotels can improve their marketing success by leveraging technologies and innovation strategy initiatives to suit guests’ ever-changing needs. Thus, this paper investigated the effect of service quality on marketing performance among hotels in Jordan. In addition, it analyzed the moderating role of operational innovation and external environment on the relationship between service quality and marketing performance among Jordanian hotels. This study was quantitative and used the pretested questionnaire by interviewing general managers. The valid questionnaires were distributed stratified randomly to general hotel managers. The analyzed data were from 162 completed questionnaires, employing partial least squares analysis software. The results demonstrate a positive relationship between service quality and marketing performance. Moreover, this relationship was moderated by operational innovation and external environment. Clearly, the managers in Jordanian hotels might find and draw business strategies by linking the marketing performance with the service quality specifically (SERVQUAL) and employing management and technologies strategies through its operational innovation and external environment.

  • The role of women entrepreneurship antecedents in supporting social and
           economic well-being

    • Abstract: One way to support sustainable development is to put concern on women empowerment. The role of women in a society is essential, yet often treated unfairly. This study focuses on looking at the aspects that can determine the success of entrepreneurship as a form of women entrepreneurship. Additionally, the effect of women entrepreneurship on social and economic well-being is also investigated. The study took a quantitative approach and employed a survey method on a total of 406 members of Setia Bhakti Wanita cooperative in Indonesia. STATA 14 statistical software was used to analyze the data. The results of this study indicate that access to micro-loans has the highest impact on women entrepreneurship (path coefficient 0.43), followed by social environment support (path coefficient 0.32), and entrepreneurial education (path coefficient 0.13). Furthermore, women entrepreneurs have a more favorable impact on economic well-being (path coefficient 0.93), as evidenced by better access to health service, than social well-being (path coefficient 0.89) that is shown from better social relationship with the nearest community. This study offers solid evidence-based recommendations for women’s empowerment in Indonesia using proper entrepreneur organization channels.AcknowledgmentThe authors thank to Faculty of Economics and Business, Airlangga University, Indonesia and the Setia Bhakti Women Cooperative East Java Indonesia.

  • Adoption of innovative mobile payment technologies in Indonesia: The role
           of attitude

    • Abstract: Financial service industries have experienced dynamic technological innovation. The research objective of this paper is to identify factors influencing the intentions of potential users to adopt the newly launched innovative mobile payment applications. This study proposes a theoretical framework based on the technology acceptance model (TAM). One hundred sixty-nine respondents were involved in this investigation, and the data were gathered using an online survey. The collected data were analyzed using the SEM technique. The findings reveal that users’ attitude has an essential role in mediating the impact of the benefit and trust on the intention to adopt a mobile payment technology. This study also shows different results from the previous studies regarding user perceptions of attitudes. The ease of use of innovative digital applications does not significantly affect attitudes.Furthermore, an attitude positively impacts users’ intention to adopt innovative mobile payment applications. Therefore, user attitudes have an essential role in communicating the impact of the benefits derived from the intention to adopt an innovative mobile payment application. This study proves that innovative digital application providers need to pay attention to strategies for promoting their services. It is also vital for the providers to include the trust component in their service.

  • Achieving competitive advantage through spiritual capital, innovation work
           behavior, and organizational learning

    • Abstract: Spiritual capital is one of the essential intellectual capital that drives individuals and organizations to run the business following the law and standards. As a result, organizations can gain trust and integrity by following the rules and affecting their competitive advantages. This study analyzes competitive advantage based on spiritual capital, innovative work behavior, and organizational learning, which are reflected in two dimensions: exploratory and exploitative learning. The research population was 53 businesspersons of handicraft industries in the Malang City of Indonesia selected by saturated sampling techniques. A research instrument collected data in a structured questionnaire distributed to business people; the data were analyzed with SmartPLS 3.0. The results are interesting because they showed that spiritual capital did not significantly affect competitive advantage, both directly with a coefficient of 0.090 and as a mediator with a coefficient of 0.030 for innovative work behavior on competitive advantages. Other results of this study concluded that innovative work behavior was affected significantly by exploratory learning with a coefficient of 0.412 and exploitative learning with a coefficient of 0.139. Indirectly, exploratory and exploitative learning have a significant impact on spiritual capital with a coefficient of 0.139 for exploratory learning and 0.112 for exploitative learning. Spiritual capital was affected significantly by innovative work behavior with a coefficient of 0.331, and innovative work behavior affected competitive advantages with a coefficient of 0.371.

  • The nexus between interest rate and bank profitability: Does bank
           prudential capital matter'

    • Abstract: The credit expansion policy and banking regulations have attracted widespread attention of bank regulators and policymakers over the last few years. This research aims to examine how the interest rate, prudential capital, and their interaction impact banking profitability in emerging economies like Egypt. The final sample of banks registered by the Central Bank of Egypt comprises 22 banks during the period of 2011–2020. The cross-sectional time-series Generalized Least Squares (GLS) regression approach is used to estimate the panel data. The findings confirm that low-interest rates indeed harm banks’ profitability. In addition, higher prudential capital enhances the profitability of banks. Importantly, the impact of low-interest rates on bank profitability can be diminished only when banks are maintaining higher prudential capital. Based on the findings, it is recommended that bank managers and policymakers in Egypt as well as in similar emerging economies shall promote the application of the Basel Capital Accord to increasingly strengthen the profitability of banks, which in turn reinforces the performance of the banking sector, especially during low-interest rate times. The findings also reveal that bank-specific characteristics such as large bank size, increased efficiency, and less concentrated market enhance banks’ profitability. Overall, the findings of this research are highly relevant since improved profitability is one of the main objectives of bank supervisors and regulators.AcknowledgmentsThe authors are grateful to Mr. Ali Shaker and Amira Ragab for their valuable support.

  • Students as customers of higher education: Perceptions of South African

    • Abstract: An increase in the number of privately-owned higher education institutions (HEIs) in South Africa has created greater competition among private and public HEIs since all are competing for the same pool of potential students. Thus, marketers of HEIs have begun to realize the importance of placing a renewed focus on their students’ (customers’) needs. This study aimed to establish whether students perceive themselves as customers of HEIs, as well as the extent to which they perceive the attitude of academic and administrative staff toward them as being customer-focused. A total of 411 online questionnaires were administered to students at select private and public HEIs in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were conducted on the survey data using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences. As a result, the majority of students perceived themselves as customers of the HEI. Furthermore, students’ perception of the attitude of academic and administrative staff toward them reinforced the view that they are indeed customers of their HEI. Thus, by working with the academics and administrators, HEIs should consistently identify and satisfy the service needs of students.
