While you’re preparing your conference submissions (upload here by July 17, 2020), take a moment to read about our exciting new Research Methods Workshop on EVENT STUDIES at the upcoming AIB-Southeast US Chapter annual conference (October 22-24, 2020).
Bring your technical skills to the next level and learn from the best ….
Stewart Miller and Sarfraz Khan will provide an introduction to the event study, which is an analytical technique that provides a means to capture the financial impact (i.e., the valuation effect) of a firm-specific event such as forming an international joint venture (Brown & Warner, 1980). Despite the extensive use of event studies in the finance, economics, and accounting literatures, and increased use in the strategic management literature, there has been considerably less use of the technique in IB articles. Using a “virtual” platform, Stewart and Sarfraz will explain how to identify events; gather stock return data; compute “abnormal returns”; and choose test statistics. They will use Eventus and Event Study by WRDS as well as provide STATA coding to complete an event study.
