Institutional holding and market friction
Ping-Wen Sun Louisiana State University Abstract This study investigates the relationship between the institutional holding and the stock’s market friction measure. According to Sun’s (2007) findings, I use Hou and Moskowitz’s (2005) price delay measure (D1) and Liu’s (2006) liquidity measure (LM12) to proxy for a stock’s market friction. I find that a higher total institutional holding tends to decrease a stock’s price delay measure, but institutional holding exhibits a U-shaped relationship with a stock’s LM12 measure. However, as the number of institutions increases, the stock’s market friction decreases. In terms of different types of institutional holdings, higher total block holding or higher top five institutional holding of a stock increases a stock’s market friction level. Furthermore, in contrast to Agarwal’s (2007) findings, higher independent long term institutional holding and risk averse institutional holding tends to decrease a stock’s market friction level.

...1. LE OFFERTE PUBBLICHE INIZIALI Con questo primo capitolo si vuole fornire una overview generale sulle offerte pubbliche inziali (in inglese Initial Public Offerings, ovvero IPOs). In particolare verranno presentati i contributi teorici della letteratura sul processo di quotazione e si andranno a definire quelle che sono le motivazioni, i ruoli e gli attori coinvolti in tale processo. Le IPO sono uno degli eventi di maggiore importanza e magnitudo nel ciclo di vita di una impresa, in quanto l’ammissione alla negoziazione dei titoli comporta una modifica alla struttura legale e di controllo dell’impresa. Il management infatti non deve rispondere solamente ad un gruppo concentrato di azionisti, bensì dovrà dare risposte ad un insieme insieme ben più disperso di investitori. Inoltre una IPO può impattare significativamente anche su quella che è la struttura finanziaria dell’impresa e pertanto sul valore d’impresa stesso. Esistono infatti diverse modalità con le quali si possono svolgere le offerte pubbliche iniziali. Una prima opzione è tramite le Offerte Pubbliche di Vendita (OPV). In questo caso gli azionisti già esistenti cedono sul mercato una frazione o la totalità del capitale da loro detenuto. Con questa modalità dunque gli azionisti dell’impresa raccolgono liquidità per se, ma non avviene una conseguente raccolta di capitale per l’impresa. Una seconda opzione è l’Offerta pubblica di sottoscrizione (OPS). Questa modalità consiste in un vero e proprio aumento di......

...A doctorate PhD in Accounting will earn you the title of “doctor.” A PhD program can be significantly more demanding than a Master’s degree, which is why most accountants finish their Master’s degree before committing to a PhD grogram. Some schools lump a Master’s degree and PhD into one continuous program, which may save time in the long run. Teaching looks like it would be fun, you see that some professors are only on campus two days a week, and you have heard that professors get paid well. What could possibly be the down side? Unlike other accounting programs, getting a PhD means significant sacrifice and delay while earning your degree. A PhD accounting program takes, on average, 4-7 years to complete. You will have to complete 2-3 years of coursework. Each seminar in your coursework explores a different area of accounting and challenges you to think about it more deeply and examine it from all angles. After completing coursework, students must produce independent projects and a thesis. While the coursework can be easily mapped out on a timeline, the dissertation is what draws out most students' pursuit of a PhD. Finishing a dissertation in 2-3 years is possible with hard work and dedication. The sacrifice of a PhD in Accounting comes in with your reduced work abilities. Due to the intense nature of a PhD program in Accounting, most students are unable to work more than part-time; many do not work at all. Many just take on research assistantships or teaching......

...Draft Proposal for PhD Research (Working) Title An analysis of accessibility support demands in electronic learning systems in the context of Higher Education Information Services. Your reasons and purposes for undertaking this project This programme of study continues personal research and professional practice in the field of Information Science, particularly within the area of end-user systems accessibility. Within Higher Education, there is evidence of constant innovation and changing approaches to provision of online services; however, the wide ranging and long term issue of user accessibility has clearly become a secondary consideration. My PhD research should underpin improved provision of accessible systems for adult learners who are disabled (as defined by the Disability Discrimination Act and amendments). Your research project Most recently, the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) has become an important feature of electronic service delivery within the HE Information Services sector, demanding close attention to issues of functionality, sustainability and usability. Whilst some research has begun to examine the functionality of e-learning systems, little attention has been paid to usability issues, in particular to the accessibility of complex Web based interfaces for disabled users. Standards for achieving accessibility via technical specifications and interface design have been established for the conventional Web, however, it......

...of Origin 614 Deciding on the Marketing Organization 616 Export Department 616 International Division 616 Global Organization 616 Summary 617 Applications 617 I4 xv Preface What’s New in the 14th Edition The overriding goal of the revision for the 14th edition of Marketing Management was to create as comprehensive, current, and engaging MBA marketing textbook as possible. Where appropriate, new material was added, old material was updated, and no longer relevant or necessary material was deleted. Marketing Management, 14th edition, allows those instructors who have used the 13th edition to build on what they have learned and done while at the same time offering a text that is unsurpassed in breadth, depth, and relevance for students experiencing Marketing Management for the first time. The successful across-chapter reorganization into eight parts that began with the 12th edition of Marketing Management has been preserved, as well as many of the favorably received within-chapter features that have been introduced through the years, such as topical chapter openers, in-text boxes highlighting noteworthy companies or issues, and the Marketing Insight and Marketing Memo boxes that provide in-depth conceptual and practical commentary. Significant changes to the 14th edition include: • • • • • • • • Brand new opening vignettes for each chapter set the stage for the chapter material to follow. By covering topical brands or companies, the vignettes are......

The Pendulum of Phd Student Role Identity

...The Pendulum of PhD Student Role Identity David M. Penn Walden University April 12, 2015 The Pendulum of PhD Student Role Identity Bansel (2011) noted that as citizens traverse through life, each individual develops a framework of his or her own role identity and how the interpretation of identity interacts within the interpersonal, societal, and academic landscape (pp. 544). This development of role identity owes its genesis to the social-psychological disciplines as emergent and ephemeral rather than a static concept (p. 550). Jazvac-Martek (2009) asserted that the defining of academic identities is integral to the pursuit of all aspects of life but especially salient when focused on the PhD student, an area that lacks significant research and data (pp. 253-554). Barnacle and Mewburn (2010) contend that what the PhD track commitment requires, as a lifestyle, is an evolution in how we as students see ourselves and how we see our emerging roles in society (pp. 433-444). Jazvac-Martek (2009) compares the doctoral student’s journey is a transformative “rite-of-passage” for those who seek to embed academic inquiry into every aspect of his or her life and utilize the knowledge gleaned to further the common good of society as scholar-practitioners (pp. 253-262). According to Jazvac-Martek (2009), she reported that there needs to be perspicuous and prescribed support structures in doctoral education so that the doctoral students may come to understand his or her identity......

...6 In my opinion Hope was not justified in deciding that the costs were for tooling modifications. There was not sufficient evidence to come to this conclusion, just some complicated explanations from USSC and inaccurate purchase orders and invoices. The evidence was not relevant to the audit objective. The specific products with modifications should have been traced back to their purchase orders. Instead the auditors just took the explanation of these orders from management. Finally the reliability of the evidence was not high, USSC had a lot to lose if it was concluded that they were indeed general production and the General Manger for Lacey had changed his position numerous times. The only reliable evidence was that of the independent law firm that concluded the purchase orders and invoices were not for tooling modifications. 5 The evidence that hope collected that supports USSC's claim that the charges in question were in fact for tooling modifications was the General Manager of Lacey Corporation (A division of Barden Corporation) goes back on his previous statement and confirms that the purchase orders and invoices were in fact for tooling modifications. USSC explained their position and said that they had instructed Lacey to make certain tooling changes that would result in improved efficiency in production of USSC products. When the audit team asked to take a tour of the Lacey plant to examine the actual production process the Lacey General Manger informed the audit...

...English as a foreign language among its citizens. In particular, it has mandated the study of English for all college and university students and has made the passing of the College English Test (CET) at Band 4 level a requirement for obtaining a degree. With some ten million candidates annually (and rising) CET Band 4 has become the world’s largest language test administered nationwide (Jin and Yang, 2006). In a deliberate attempt to harness the backwash effect of examinations on teaching and learning, the Ministry of Education has insisted that all college and university students (generally when in their second year of study) must sit the CET Band 4 written papers that test reading, writing and listening skills in English. Aimed largely, but not exclusively, at those students majoring in English, there is also a higher level, Band 6, CET available. A problem arises, however, when it comes to the formal testing of spoken English. There is a CET Spoken English Test (CET-SET), in use since 1999, which uses the widely accepted format for such assessments of a face-to-face interview with an examiner, together with a discussion on a given topic with two or three other students taking the test at the same time. This approach is both labour- and time-intensive, however, demanding highly skilled examiners as interlocutors and ‘small batch’ examining of students in sequence. As a consequence, simply for practical reasons of manageability of the test, CETSET is only available to those......
