HANDBOOK OF CORPORATE FINANCE ECKBO PDF

This second volume of a two-part series examines three major topics. First, it devotes five chapters to the classical issue of capital structure choice. Second, it focuses on the value-implications of major corporate investment and restructuring decisions, and then concludes by surveying the role of pay-for-performance type executive compensation contracts on managerial incentives and risk-taking behavior. In collaboration with the first volume, this handbook takes stock of the main empirical findings to date across an unprecedented spectrum of corporate finance issues. The surveys are written by leading empirical researchers that remain active in their respective areas of interest. With few exceptions, the writing style makes the chapters accessible to industry practitioners.

Judging by the sheer number of papers reviewed in this Handbook, the empirical analysis of firms' financing and investment decisions-empirical corporate finance-has become a dominant field in financial economics. The growing interest in everything "corporate" is fueled by a healthy combination of fundamental theoretical developments and recent widespread access to large transactional data bases.

A less scientific-but nevertheless important-source of inspiration is a growing awareness of the important social implications of corporate behavior and governance. This Handbook takes stock of the main empirical findings to date across an unprecedented spectrum of corporate finance issues, ranging from econometric methodology, to raising capital and capital structure choice, and to managerial incentives and corporate investment behavior.

The surveys are written by leading empirical researchers that remain active in their respective areas of interest. With few exceptions, the writing style makes the chapters accessible to industry practitioners. For doctoral students and seasoned academics, the surveys offer dense roadmaps into the empirical research landscape and provide suggestions for future work.

Take the issue of IPO underpricing, which is something of personal interest to me. It refers to the oft-noted phenomenon of the jump in the first day's closing price, compared to the opening price. In the US, this was especially prevalent during the dot com years. But it still happens, and by no means confined to the US. As in last week, in China, with several major IPOs. One chapter discusses the various explanations put forth. Like the presence of irrational investors who bid up the price from the IPO starting value.

Certainly, the recent behaviour of the Chinese capital markets in Shanghai and Hong Kong give this some plausibility. The chapter surveys IPO performance across several countries. Sadly and ironically, the one major country not looked at is China. Perhaps because as a major occurrence, this is still very new over there.

Anyhow, the explanations are worth contemplating. Especially if you are a Chinese regulator! Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
