  • Share repurchases and accounting conservatism
    • Abstract: The prior literature indicates that financial policy (e.g., payout policy) as well as accounting policy (e.g., conservatism) can be used to address incentive problems in firms but finds mixed evidence. We conjecture that stock repurchases, an increasingly popular form of payout, and conservatism are potential mechanisms to counter managerial propensity to engage in overinvestment using free cash flows. Consequently, we expect a negative relation between repurchases and conservatism as well as a stronger negative relation between these two mechanisms in firms with high levels of free cash flows. We find results consistent with these expectations. By contrast, we find a weaker negative relation between repurchases and conservatism when CEO tenure is higher, which confirms that more entrenched CEOs have less incentives to solve the overinvestment problem.

  • The market pricing of negative special items through time: an unintended
           consequence of regulation change'
    • Abstract: Prior research concludes that the implications of negative special items (NSIs) for future earnings are more fully reflected than earnings before NSIs. Our evidence suggests that US regulatory changes resulted in dramatic increases (decreases) in NSI reporting frequency (magnitude). We find that the advantage in pricing NSIs relative to other components of earnings disappears for the average firm post-regulation and for high frequency NSI reporters regardless of time period. Our evidence suggests that regulations governing the financial reporting of NSIs resulted in unintended consequences by impairing the ability of market participants to understand the future earnings implications of these items.

  • Lucky lots and unlucky investors
    • Abstract: The number 8 is considered lucky under the Chinese culture. This paper tries to examine whether investors hold such superstitious belief in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Using the transaction level data, we first show that more intense net buying occurs at 8-ending lots. Next, we seek favorable evidence in support of financial complexity hypothesis and informed trading hypothesis, both of which are effective in expounding the prevalence of this biased trading behavior. Finally, we find that traders’ learning by means of information acquisition is able to alleviate the lucky-8 effect on superstitious traders.

  • Investor learning, earnings signals, and stock returns
    • Abstract: Prior studies show that investor learning about earnings-based return predictors from academic research erodes return predictability. However, the signaling power of “bottom-line” earnings has declined over time, which complicates assessments of investor learning about profitability signals underlying earnings. We show that modified earnings variables with lower susceptibility to signal weakening exhibit rates of return attenuation that are 30–64% lower than rates for bottom-line earnings variables over our sample period. Notably, return gaps between bottom-line and less susceptible variables are widest in recent years, especially within non-overlapping samples and samples with weak bottom-line signals (e.g., special items, losses, fourth fiscal quarter). Our results hold after controlling for risk factors known to predict returns, they do not appear to be attributable to ex ante earnings volatility, and they are robust to alternative sample selection criteria, sub-period partitions, and portfolio holding windows. Overall, our results suggest that while investor learning is apparent in the data, learning efforts to date have been suboptimal at exploiting profitability signals within firms’ earnings streams.

  • An improved of Hull–White model for valuing Employee Stock Options
    • Abstract: Employee stock options (ESOs) are call options granted by a company to its employees as a means to retain and to motivate them for working towards improvement of the company’s earning and management. ESOs have unique characteristics, such as: they have long maturity time, they are not tradable, and they can be exercised only after the vesting period. All these characteristics have significant implication on the valuation of ESOs. In this paper, we improve Hull–White ESO model using Bino-Trinomial tree method. We also modify a single psychological barrier on Hull–White model with moving psychological barriers based on empirical study that the ESO’s holders require the stock price to be at relatively high to induce voluntary exercise, yet later they will exercise at relatively low stock price near the time to maturity. Numerical experiments are given to verify the robustness of the proposed model and to analyze the sensitivity with respect to the model parameters. The ESO prices become cheaper if the holders degrade their psychological barriers.

  • Private placements, market discounts and firm performance: the perspective
           of corporate life cycle analysis
    • Abstract: This study looks into the role of corporate life cycle on market discounts and firm performance in private placements. Using the standard event study methodology with 1854 private placements, this study finds that issuing firms on average offer discounts to their investors. While growth firms obtain higher returns around the issuance of private placements, these growth firms generate poor long run post-announcement returns. The results suggest that investors may be over-optimistic to future prospects for growth firms. As old firms generally obtain higher returns in premium offers, the evidence suggests that managers of old firms would put more efforts in managing their firms after private placements. Overall, the evidence indicates that corporate life cycle can play a role to influence firm performance in private placements. The empirical findings shed lights on the importance of corporate life cycle on firm performance in private placements.

  • Systemic risk-shifting in U.S. commercial banking
    • Abstract: This paper puts forward the proposition that U.S. commercial banks use dividends as a mechanism to shift systemic risk to debt-holders and the deposit insurer. Using a mixed data sampling modeling approach, it is shown that monthly systemic risk factors are associated with a positive effect on future quarterly bank dividends indicating systemic risk-shifting. These factors include absorption (Kritzman et al. in MIT working paper, 2010), catfin (Allen et al. in Rev Financ Stud 25:3000–3036, 2012), covar (Adrian and Brunnermeier in CoVaR. NBER Working Paper 17454. National Bureau Economic Research, Cambridge, MA, 2011), delta_covar (Adrian and Brunnermeier 2011, mes (Acharya et al. in Rev Financ Stud 24:2166–2205, 2011b), real_vol (Giglio et al. in J Financ Econ 119:457–471, 2016), and size_con (Giglio et al. 2016). In addition, they can now-cast the upward trend in systemic risk-shifting in the 1990s and the downward trend from the early 2000s to 2007. The findings suggest that the rules governing bank dividends need be revised, support the imposition of a dividend tax to mitigate the negative externalities of dividends as a risk-shifting mechanism, and document a reduced effectiveness of Prompt Corrective Action in controlling risk-shifting.

  • Advertising and tax avoidance
    • Abstract: We examine the link between firms’ advertising and their tax avoidance. By generating customer awareness, advertising helps shape firm image and reputation among customers. Such benefits of advertising would diminish if the firm is viewed as a greedy tax dodger. Greater customer awareness generated by higher advertising spending also increases the likelihood that customers would find out tax-aggressive behaviors of the firm. Thus, firms that spend more on advertising may want to be less tax-aggressive. Consistent with this argument, we find that firms with a greater extent of advertising spending have fewer tax-sheltering activities, smaller book-tax differences, and higher cash-effective tax rates. The negative effect of advertising on tax avoidance is stronger for firms that are less known, more opaque, or that have lower institutional holdings. We control for other factors affecting tax avoidance, including corporate governance and social responsibility ratings. We also use the instrumental variable method, propensity score matching, and change regressions to address endogeneity concerns. Our results remain statistically and economically significant.

  • Corporate risk-taking after adoption of compensation clawback provisions
    • Abstract: The adoption of clawbacks purports to mitigate harmful behavior to firms’ operation, including excessive corporate risk-taking at the expense of investors’ interests and firms’ long-term benefits. This study empirically examines whether corporate risk-taking declines after the adoption of clawback provisions in the compensation contracts of top executives in publicly traded US firms. Using a sample of clawback adopters and non-adopters in the Russell 3000 Index firms during the period 2005–2014, we find that the presence of clawback provisions is significantly associated with a lower level of corporate risk-taking as reflected by firms’ investment strategies and their capital structure. Additional analyses suggest that this association is stronger for small firms and for firms audited by Big 4 auditors. Robustness checks of using alternative measures for corporate risk-taking, controlling for the occurrence of financial restatements, board independence, and internal control quality, and employing a propensity matching score matching sample further support the main results. Overall, the results of this study indicate more conservative corporate risk-taking behavior after the adoption of clawbacks.

  • In search of winning mutual funds in the Chinese stock market
    • Abstract: This paper provides a methodological approach, based on the false discovery rate (FDR) of Barras et al. (J Finance 65(1):179–216, 2010., by which investors can successfully select winning mutual funds and fund managers in China. Our approach allows investors to distinguish between skilled and lucky mutual funds and fund managers and, using this information, to calibrate the proportion of their portfolio funds that are invested in the market index versus funds invested in skilled mutual funds. This feature in our approach can accommodate unique risk appetites and diversification requirements. When accounting for actual transaction costs which individual and institutional investors face in China, we show that our FDR approach can yield positive and economically significant risk-adjusted returns across various rebalancing frequencies. Our approach fares well when compared with naive historical return-based approaches for ranking mutual funds.

  • Shari’ah-compliant Sukuk versus conventional bond announcements: is
           there a wealth effect'
    • Abstract: We employ standard event study methodology to examine the stock price reaction to the issuance announcements of 237 Islamic bonds (Sukuk) versus 231 conventional bonds issued in twelve financial markets from 2005 to 2017. We further examine the effects of issuance announcement on shareholder wealth in multiple economic settings, pre-crisis, during the crisis, and post-crisis, using the recent financial crisis (2007–2009) as a benchmark. Using multiple regression model, we also attempt to identify the potential explanatory variables for the wealth effects. Our findings support existing literature: there is an insignificant market reaction for the announcements of Sukuk as well as conventional bonds in the pre-global financial crisis period of 2008. During the crisis period, market reaction is significantly negative for both groups. In the post-crisis period (which is the longest period and the largest sub-sample), the market reaction for Sukuk is positive and significant, apparently due to market participants’ new look, awareness and increased demand for Islamic financial products, whereas for conventional bonds the market reaction is insignificant. Additionally, our study finds supporting results for the signalling theory and the asymmetric information theory. Offer size has a significant positive impact on stock returns. In the pre-crisis period, large firms (with a higher asset base) generated abnormal returns. For the periods during and post crisis, large Sukuk issuers had higher abnormal returns. In addition, significant leverage is found for issuing bonds in post and during crisis periods.

  • The impact of corporate tax avoidance on analyst coverage and forecasts
    • Abstract: Corporate tax avoidance is likely to be associated with a high level of earnings management and with high financial opacity in the time-series. On this basis, we hypothesize that analyst coverage is negatively associated with corporate tax avoidance. Our results confirm this conjecture, and are robust to using a firm-fixed-effects model and a quasi-natural experiment to control for potential endogeneity. Additional analysis shows that analyst coverage is negatively related to tax risk, but there is no evidence that the informativeness of, or errors in, analyst forecasts are associated with tax avoidance. Overall, our study advances understanding of the implications of corporate tax avoidance for analyst behavior.

  • The substitutive relation between voluntary disclosure and corporate
           governance in their effects on firm performance
    • Abstract: Prior literature shows that financial disclosures and corporate governance both impact firm performance. This paper documents an important topic that has been overlooked in the prior literature, their joint effect, because the two mechanisms could be independent, substitutive, or complementary in their impact on firm performance. We find a substitutive relation based on data from 2005 to 2013 for a sample of US biotech firms, but only for firms with products in advanced stages of development, because their disclosures are trustworthy about the firms’ future performance. We do not find such effect for firms with early-stage products, that would take years to convert to profits, and whose product-related disclosures are speculative at best. This paper shows that informative and reliable voluntary disclosures have similar value-increasing effect as corporate governance and that the marginal effect of trustworthy disclosures is decreasing in governance. To the extent that the two mechanisms are costly, firms can partly substitute one for the other.

  • Suboptimal international equity portfolio diversification and stock market
    • Abstract: This paper examines whether the widely reported phenomena of home and foreign biases (i.e. suboptimal international equity portfolio diversification) hold any ramifications for the development of stock markets. The results, analysed using macro- and micro-level data, support the view that stock markets that are characterised by a higher degree of home bias are associated with lower levels of development. On the other hand, markets where foreign investors show a higher degree of allocation preference, relative to the prescribed benchmark (foreign bias), are found to be more developed. The results, which are robust to the use of shock based identification strategy, indicate that policy measures that promote optimal international equity portfolio diversification could be crucial in developing the depth and breadth of domestic stock markets.

  • Effects of tuition discounting on university’s financial performance
    • Abstract: We study how tuition discounting affects the financial decisions of universities, their student recruitment, and reputation. Using a large panel data of U.S. private and public four-year institutions, we find that tuition discounting helps institutions enhance their short-term operating surplus, increase admission yield, and reduce drop-out rate. However, it does not appear to improve the graduation rate or the quality of the incoming students. Institutions relying more on tuition discounting have more financial leverage, less equity, and experience lower liquidity and asset turnover—indicating greater financial risk. These results are stronger for private universities. Finally, out-of-sample tests show that tuition discounting may not help enhance the reputation of private universities.

  • CEO power, board oversight, and earnings announcement tone
    • Abstract: This study constructs a model of the determinants of earnings announcement tone in order to examine the impact of CEO power on earnings announcement tone. An interaction term between CEO power and board monitoring is used to test whether effective board oversight moderates the strength of the association between CEO power and earnings announcement tone. Following prior research, we measure earnings announcement tone as the spread in the proportion of positive and negative words in the announcements. CEO power is assessed across two dimensions: (1) expert power (CEO tenure) and (2) structural power (CEO-chairman duality). We use board independence, meeting frequency, and board meeting attendance to measure the effectiveness of board oversight. We find that earnings announcement tone is significantly positively associated with CEO tenure and CEO duality. The effect of CEO tenure is weaker when board oversight is stronger, especially when board members have higher reputation costs, whereas the effect of CEO duality is unchanged by board oversight mechanisms. The empirical evidence is broadly consistent with the notion that powerful CEOs use a more optimistic and aggressive tone in their earnings’ announcements and that stronger board oversight is effective in constraining overt aggressiveness in the earnings announcements issued by CEOs with longer tenure but not those issued by dual-role CEOs. The results are robust to several sensitivity tests. Finally, this study identifies CEO power and board oversight as previously unrecognized determinants of tone in earnings announcements.

  • Management’s personal ideology and financial reporting quality
    • Abstract: We investigate the relation between managers’ personal ideologies and financial reporting quality. We use Federal Elections Commission data to develop three proxies for managers’ personal ideologies and test their relations with two financial reporting quality metrics: discretionary accruals and financial statement restatements. We find that both the absolute value of discretionary accruals and the probability of restatement decrease in the degree to which firms’ managers have conservative ideologies. These results are robust in the post-SOX period, to controls for potential self-selection bias, to alternative measures of both ideology and financial reporting quality, and to controls for firm political sensitivity, lobbying activity, governance, operational complexity and auditor strength. Our findings contribute to a growing literature demonstrating that business outcomes are partially explained by manager-specific factors including managers’ personal views and priorities.

  • Testing for the underlying dynamics of bank capital buffer and performance
    • Abstract: This paper reveals the underlying dynamics between the capital buffer and bank performance in EU-27 countries. A dynamic panel analysis shows that capital buffer is significantly affected by bank performance and risk exposure. Remarkably, a threshold analysis identifies regime changes for the underlying relationships during the financial crisis of 2008. We find a positive relationship between the capital buffer and performance for banks that fall in the low performance regime, while a negative relationship is reported for the banks that belong to the high regime. Threshold results also show that buffer exerts a positive impact on bank performance. Although regulation reforms that aim to raise the capital requirements could improve bank performance and stability, these improvements are not homogeneous across banks.

  • On corporate financial distress prediction: What can we learn from private
           firms in a developing economy' Evidence from Greece
    • Abstract: Using a large dataset that includes nearly 31,000 Greek private firms we examine the determinants of the probability of corporate financial distress. Using a multi-period logit model, we find that profitability, leverage, the ratio of retained earnings-to-total assets, size, the liquidity ratio, an export dummy variable, the tendency to pay out dividends and the growth rate in real GDP are strong predictors of the probability of financial distress for Greek private firms. A model including these variables exhibits the highest in-sample and out-of-sample performance in terms of correctly classifying firms that went bankrupt as more likely to go bankrupt. The predictive ability of the model remains when we increase the forecast horizon, suggesting that the model works well over short and longer time horizons.

  • Does stable ownership create value' Evidence from the global financial
    • Abstract: We investigate the value of stable ownership for a sample of European firms using the global financial crisis as an exogenous shock and pre-and post-crisis years as benchmark periods. Consistent with the argument that stable ownership allows managers to focus on the creation of long-term value, we find that stable ownership resulted in higher stock returns and a higher market-to-book ratio during the crisis. This positive effect of stable ownership was not reversed after the crisis. Stable institutional blockholdings were more valuable in countries with weaker investor protection. However, the positive effect does not apply to firms in which a family is the largest blockholder. Finally, we also find that ownership stability was associated with a higher level of investments, illustrating that stable ownership affects real corporate decisions.
