  • Test power properties of within-firm estimators of ownership and
           board-related explanatory variables with low time variation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Corporate governance research is often limited in its ability to employ within-firm estimators, which address time-invariant endogeneity, when the variables of interest exhibit low time variation (for example, ownership and board independence). The problem is further exacerbated if data for multiple points in time needs to be hand-collected. We offer simulation-based methodological guidance to improve the statistical power of within-firm estimators in the presence of low time variation. We illustrate the usefulness of our simulation results by replicating two influential studies on ownership and board independence and extending them with a within-firm estimator. Based on widely used databases as well as a novel granular database, we document the different degrees and nature of time variation of ownership and board independence across jurisdictions and subgroups by listed status, family control and complexity of ownership structure. Researchers can use our findings to optimize the hand-collection and pre-processing of governance data and thereby increase statistical power and/or to distinguish whether lack of significance is due to low time variation as opposed to absence of a true relationship between their governance variable of interest and the respective outcome.

  • Client corruption culture and audit quality: the conditioning effect of
           the competitive position of the incumbent auditor

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Prior research suggests that corporate corruption culture captures an audit client’s general attitude towards opportunistic behavior. In this paper, we examine whether the relation between client corruption culture and audit quality is attenuated or exacerbated by the competitive position of the incumbent auditor in the local audit market. We find that the incumbent auditor’s weak competitive position in the local audit market exacerbates the negative effects of client corruption culture on audit quality. By the same token, we show that the incumbent auditor’s strong competitive position in the local audit market attenuates the adverse audit quality effects associated with client corruption culture. Our findings speak to the interplay between client corruption culture and the competitive position of the incumbent auditor in US local audit markets and is of potential interest to regulators concerned about the impact of client corruption culture and audit market competition on audit quality.

  • Fund manager skill: selling matters more!

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We examine whether mutual fund managers have differential skill in the buy and sell domains. Although they have characteristic-timing ability in aggregate, we show they exhibit asymmetric ability when buying and selling. Our key finding is that fund managers with superior selling ability are significantly better at buying stocks and, as a result, earn significantly higher aggregate returns. However, fund managers who buy stocks successfully do not necessarily have parallel selling skills, leading to lower returns overall. Thus, we provide strong evidence that selling skill is the key determinant of overall mutual fund timing performance.

  • Trading concentration and industry-specific information: an analysis of
           auto complaints

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We investigate whether sophisticated investors’ trading concentration in the auto industry is associated with their use of auto complaint data. We find that the extent to which mutual funds concentrate their trading in the auto industry is positively associated with their incorporation of the complaint information into their trading decisions both before and after auto recall announcements. We provide evidence that trading concentration by mutual funds is more consistent with the information advantage explanation rather than behavioral explanations for concentration such as overconfidence or familiarity. However, we find that pension funds, regardless of their level of trading concentration, do not use the customer complaint information to inform their trading decisions. Our findings suggest that pension funds concentrate trading for reasons other than short-term information advantage, suggesting that the underlying reason for trading concentration can differ by the type of institutional investor.

  • Ex-ante performance of REIT portfolios

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) market has become an increasingly important vehicle for alternative investment for equity investors. While existing research examining the cross-section of REIT returns usually employs standard risk factors in the in-sample models, it can only show the ex-post performance of REIT portfolios. The goal of our paper is to examine the ex-ante performance of REIT portfolios (i.e., the ability of investors to earn abnormal returns in real time). We employ the out-of-sample methodology of Cooper, Gutierrez, and Marcum (2005), and show that ex-ante performance of REIT portfolios is rather weak. For about half of our 19-year sample over the period of 1999 to 2017, the portfolio performances of REITs chosen ex-ante do not beat the performances of the FTSE-NAREIT or the CRSP Equal-Weighted index. After adjusting for transaction costs, the REIT portfolios significantly further underperform their benchmarks. Overall, our findings suggest that the market is relatively efficient in the REIT sector, and it is difficult for investors to devise trading strategies that improve the ex-ante performance of REIT portfolios, based on standard risk factors.

  • Does U.S. CEO connectedness in China matter' Evidence from Chinese
           import penetration

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract I study whether U.S. CEOs well connected in China better capture investment opportunities from China. I find that Chinese connected CEOs realize larger sales from China, better announcement returns of investments in China, greater operating performance, and more rewards in the labor market when investment opportunities from China increase, especially for CEOs’ connections with political officers in China. These relations are stronger for firms that lack relevant information about Chinese environment in the boardroom. My results are robust to various controls for managerial skill and regulatory reforms in China as well as tests for endogeneity.

  • Does corporate social responsibility impact equity risk' International
           evidence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Based on a large panel of listed firms from 52 countries in the period 2002–2020, we investigate the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and equity risk. We confirm previous evidence that higher CSR scores are related to lower risk measures, considering all types of risks: total, systematic, and idiosyncratic. Analyzing a large international sample allows us to investigate the role of country and company characteristics in the relationship between CSR scores and risk measures. The risk-reducing effect is more pronounced in weaker institutional environments. It is stronger in civil-law countries, in countries with low security regulation or disclosure requirement levels and where financial information is less widespread. Firms in high impact or high profile industries benefit more from CSR than firms in other industries as do firms that are not cross-listed. The financial crisis has increased the risk-reducing effect of CSR. The main results are confirmed in the COVID-19 period.

  • The evolution of trade credit: new evidence from developed versus
           developing countries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using a large sample of listed firms from 72 countries over the period 1990–2019, we document a marked decrease in trade credit that is more pronounced for firms in developed economies relative to those in emerging economies. We find little evidence that firm characteristics drive this trend, as their relation with trade credit remains relatively stable throughout the sample period. We test several competing propositions and find that the listing decade, institutional factors, and financial development explain the downward trajectory in trade credit. We also report diminishing returns to trade credit that are higher in the US and other developed economies than in emerging economies. These results are robust to alternative definitions of trade credit and to controlling for several firm-specific and macroeconomic factors.

  • Earnings patterns and managerial guidance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines whether the presence of patterns in a firm’s earnings history, namely: strings of earnings increases or decreases and breaks in such strings, affects the likelihood and outcomes of management issued guidance. We find that, consistent with increased demand for information about changes in established earnings patterns, firms are more likely to issue guidance before breaks in patterns. For continuing strings, disclosure choices depend on the nature of news: while firms are less likely to issue guidance for strings of decreases, they actively guide for strings of increases after Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg FD). Our results indicate that management guidance before negative breaks in patterns is incorporated in stock prices upon issuance, and consequently attenuates the market reaction during earnings announcements. However, we fail to find evidence of market reaction to guidance issuances for positive break news, which investors may view as less credible. Overall, we conclude that while firms appear to issue guidance strategically, investors do not fully incorporate the information from management in stock prices. Our findings are consistent with the litigation hypothesis of greater disclosure to avoid litigation risk associated with changes in earnings patterns, and only partially support the claim that management guidance may reduce information asymmetry associated with break events.

  • Influences of family ownership on dividend policy under mandatory dividend
           rules

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We explore the relationship between family ownership and dividend policy in an insider financial system under mandatory dividend rules. In a civil law insider institutional setting like ours, the concentration of management control in the hands of family members in combination with poor corporate governance makes the expropriation of minorities more likely for high levels of family ownership leading potentially to lower dividend payouts. We theorize on the competing effects of the alignment and entrenchment hypotheses of family control and how the dividend supply and demand mechanisms explain dividend payout decisions. We empirically demonstrate a U-shaped relationship between dividends and family ownership- akin to previously documented dividend patterns across Anglo-American firms- in line with the alignment effects on the supply of dividends and the entrenchment effects on the demand of dividends. Meanwhile, high levels of family ownership increase the likelihood that the mandatory (minimum) dividend requirement is waived. Investment opportunities and the firm’s risk profile moderate the shape and strength of the above relationships.

  • Firm life cycle stages and earnings management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We provide evidence that the differences in economic growth and stability of firms during different stages of their life cycle encourage managers to manage the reported earnings differently to achieve their goals. Our findings support the expectation that managers adjust the reported earnings upward using positive discretionary accruals during the introductory and decline stages of firm life cycle. The upward adjustment of reported earnings during the introductory stage enables them to achieve the objective of sending positive signals on firm performance when the firm is in a formative stage, and also provides a better base for prediction of future earnings. The upward adjustment of reported earnings during the decline stage are expected to enhance firm’s life, which would enable managers to take remedial actions to improve firm performance, especially when the firm is in a distress situation. On the other hand, our findings show that managers may consider using negative discretionary accruals during the growth and maturity stages so that they can save some earnings for use during later years when firm performance compared to market expectations is weak. The managers are, however, not likely to adjust the reported earnings downward when the reported earnings fall short of market expectations. Additionally, we find that large institutional shareholdings perform effective monitoring and discourage managers to use discretionary accruals because their use may result in lower reliability of reported earnings.

  • Outsourcing as a cooperative game between the CEO and labor: theory and
           evidence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We develop a model of a cooperative power game between a chief executive officer (CEO) and labor over a proposed corporate outsourcing, and test the model’s predictions concerning the decision to outsource, division of profits, and post-outsourcing firm performance using a sample of outsourcing deals by US firms. In accord with the model, we find that a firm is more likely to outsource when CEO power is greater, production costs are higher, and the industry is more homogeneous. Notably, we find that the outsourcing decision does not affect the CEO’s share of profits, and that CEO power is positively related to post-outsourcing performance. Additionally, poor prior firm performance moderates the power dynamics between the CEO and labor. These findings imply that labor can supplement traditional governance mechanisms and act as an effective managerial monitor when the firm undergoes a major restructuring.

  • Impact of information disclosure ratings on investment efficiency:
           evidence from China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the impact of Shenzhen Stock Exchange’s (SZSE) information disclosure ratings on investment efficiency in China. Based on a sample of Chinese A-share listed companies on the SZSE from 2001 to 2018, we discover that superior information disclosure ratings improve investment efficiency after controlling for various firm- and industry-level variables. Our findings remain valid after various robustness tests and using instrumental variables to address the endogeneity problem. Specifically, we find that improving information disclosure ratings help firms attract more investor attention, which leads to higher investment efficiency. In addition, this information disclosure effect is more pronounced for underinvestment firms and firms on the main board than for smaller firms on SEM (small- and medium-sized enterprise) and GEM (growth enterprise market) boards. Our evidence supports the idea that regulatory activities for information disclosure ratings of companies listed on China’s stock exchanges improve investment efficiency.

  • Can trade credit rejuvenate Islamic banking'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study proposes a renewal of the contemporary Islamic banking Murabaha financing model as it aggravates financial fragility with waning economic efficiency. We adapt the working capital framework of successful US companies like Amazon and Walmart and model an innovative Murabaha facility as trade credit within the real sector of the economy. We then test its robustness in a range of simulation tests. Our approach is novel and stands in contrast to the familiar financial sector fixed-income facilities, characteristic of Western economies, stealthily mimicked as mark-up (interest rate based) Murabaha by Islamic banks. We argue that this is neither appropriate nor effective for Islamic economies, making them fragile under monetary pressures in crises like the current coronavirus and energy ones. Our simulation results indicate that the trade credit Murabaha not only transforms debt into a risk-sharing one but also offers more competitive financing rates, reduces systemic risk, and improves financial stability. Furthermore, our results imply that the trade credit Murabaha can increase the efficiency of Islamic financial systems and make them more resilient to shocks. Consequently, this paper discusses the integration of our novel Murabaha within a recreated architecture of Universal Banking. As an implication, this should promote business activity and contribute to global growth. Finally, we recommend how to deploy our novel Murabaha based on trade credit (as opposed to the currently deployed fixed-income-mimicked Murabaha) to alleviate twin agency debt costs (risk shifting, underinvestment) and solve the ownership transfer problem of modern Islamic banking.

  • Competitive threat and strategic disclosure during the IPO quiet period

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the disclosure behavior of rival firms identified by an initial public offering (IPO) candidate in its registration statement. We hypothesize that identified rivals have incentives to preempt the competitive effects of the IPO and do so by disclosing more positive information during the IPO quiet period when the IPO candidate faces communication restrictions. We find that the tone of disclosures by identified rivals becomes more positive during the quiet period, and reverses after the quiet period. We also find that identified rivals initiate highly positive press releases about their product market condition during the quiet period, with the tone reversal being mainly driven by identified rivals experiencing their competitor’s IPO withdrawal. Together, these results suggest that identified rivals’ concerns over product market competition drive their strategic disclosure behavior. Further evidence indicates that this behavior hurts the IPO candidate and benefits the identified rivals. Thus, while protecting investors and facilitating market efficiency, this quiet period regulation can become an opportunity for industry rivals to influence the IPO process and market competition.

  • Evidence that financing decisions contribute to the zero-earnings
           discontinuity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we argue that financing decisions contribute to the zero-earnings discontinuity. We find a discontinuity in the distribution of earnings before tax and earnings before special items, but not in the distribution of earnings before interest which suggests that interest expense contributes to the zero-earnings discontinuity. To investigate the role of interest expense in the zero-earnings discontinuity, we further show that there was a discontinuity in the distribution of the level of debt issues around zero earnings contemporaneous with the zero-earnings discontinuity. We also show that the recent disappearance of zero-earnings discontinuity is coincident with the disappearance of the discontinuity in the debt issuance distribution. Overall, our findings suggest that the level of debt contributed to the zero-earnings discontinuity when it existed.

  • Do investors infer future cash flow volatility based on liquidity'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Prior literature has studied the relationship between historic cash flow volatility and current levels of liquidity (Bates et al. in J Financ 64:1985–2021, 2009; Han and Qiu in J Corp Financ 13:43–57, 2007). In this paper, we study the relationship between liquidity and future returns. When investors observe a highly liquid balance sheet, they infer the firm’s beliefs about the risk of future cash flow volatility and price the stock accordingly. Our measure of liquidity is negatively and significantly associated with subsequent period stock returns. More liquid firms earn significantly higher levels of returns over the subsequent period, consistent with investor perceptions that liquidity is positively associated with future cash flow risk. We also find that firms with highly liquid balance sheets also realize significantly higher levels of future cash flow volatility, consistent with precautionary savings. This represents one possible explanation for why investors perceive more liquid firms as riskier than their less liquid counterparts.

  • Can credit default swaps exert an enduring monitoring influence on
           political integrity'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Exploiting the launch of U.S. state credit default swaps (CDS) to study how financial market monitoring affects local political integrity, we show that CDS-referenced states are associated with reduced corruption conviction rates of local government officials by about 28% post-launch compared to non-CDS-referenced states. The effect on curbing corruption persists up to six years after CDS issuance. Improved transparency of government fiscal information is the primary mechanism through which CDS inception affects corruption. We conclude that credit market innovation creates positive and enduring externalities for political integrity.

  • Enhancing stock market anomalies with machine learning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We examine the predictability of 299 capital market anomalies enhanced by 30 machine learning approaches and over 250 models in a dataset with more than 500 million firm-month anomaly observations. We find significant monthly (out-of-sample) returns of around 1.8–2.0%, and over 80% of the models yield returns equal to or larger than our linearly constructed baseline factor. For the best performing models, the risk-adjusted returns are significant across alternative asset pricing models, considering transaction costs with round-trip costs of up to 2% and including only anomalies after publication. Our results indicate that non-linear models can reveal market inefficiencies (mispricing) that are hard to conciliate with risk-based explanations.

  • Investor sentiment and bitcoin prices

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using a rich data set of transaction-level buy and sell orders from the major digital currency exchange Coinbase, we formulate a measure for investor sentiment and shed new evidence on the sentiment-return relation for bitcoin. Using a bootstrapped quantile regression procedure we show a significant and robust relation between rising sentiment and price increases, and vice versa, across the distribution of bitcoin price changes. This relation is shown to be robust when controlling for a variety of exchange-specific and blockchain-wide variables. This relation is also robust when controlling for aggregate momentum across major cryptocurrencies. This finding is important as our data sample spans a period before and after the introduction of futures markets for bitcoin, which has arguably resulted in a regime shift in the time series behavior of its price. Taken together, our results show that bitcoin prices can undergo regime changes and that conventional regression-type models that focus on the center of the distribution of bitcoin price changes can yield misleading estimates.
