Confirming Dividend Changes and the Non Monotonic Investor Revision of Earnings Persistence
  • Author : Christian Müller
  • Release : 30 December 2013
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Pages : 137 Pages
  • ISBN : 365804473X
  • Category : Business & Economics

Synopsis:
The stylized facts that firms pay and investors react to dividends disregard dividend neutrality. Taking on the perspective that informational asymmetries are the central determinant for dividend value relevance, Christian Müller assumes that firm’s dividend decision conveys useful information to investors. He shows that investors use dividend changes to revise their a priori expectations about the persistence of a current earnings change. While his theoretical and empirical analyses generally imply that dividend changes constitute informative, but imperfect information signals, he further identifies situations in which they are substantial to investors. Christian Müller’s research comprehensively examines the informational role of dividend policy and provides new insights to the corresponding Bayesian investor learning process.

Unveiling Wealth
  • Author : Peter Bartelmus
  • Release : 08 May 2007
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Pages : 226 Pages
  • ISBN : 0306482215
  • Category : Technology & Engineering

Synopsis:
Does money blur perspectives for a better life? Lifting the money veil from our yardsticks of progress, income and wealth, reveals the trade-offs of economic growth. The book presents new indicators of the social, economic and ecological impacts of our lifestyles and production techniques. The indicators help to identify those responsible for these impacts and account for their accountability in terms of environmental and other ("social") costs. Sustainable development is to bring about long-term prosperity without undermining its natural foundation. For the assessment of the opaque concept we need both, physical impact measures and environmentally modified ("green") indicators of income, capital and output. Peter Bartelmus opens the dialogue between frequently hostile camps of economists and environmentalists, data producers and users, and scientists and policy makers. Together, they may steer us towards a sustainable future.
