Seminar: Relative Valuation Effects of Local and Foreign Analysts’ Voting: The Case of IR Awards

5 July 2018 (Thursday)
Time: 12:15pm    registration
12:30pm    presentation presentation (Sandwiches and drinks will be provided)
Venue: HKSFA Office
14/F, BOC Group Life Assurance Tower, 136 Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong (map)
Outline: Using a proprietary data set on voting records of analysts and professional investors on Hong Kong listed firms for Investor Relation (IR) Awards for 2015-2017, preliminary finding suggests that the stock price effect of IR award announcements is positively significant. More importantly, awardees receiving stronger voting from international investors experience higher valuation effect upon announcements. Professor Louis Cheng will present the findings from his recent study of IR Awards, and share how international voters/investors disseminate positive information of these voted firms in the market, leading to a stronger market valuation effect.
