内容简介:This study shows that analysts’ interests in visiting a firm, measured by the number/ratio of analysts who visit a firm in current year without issuing earnings forecast for that firm, predict a firm’s future fundamentals and capital market activities. We find that a change in analyst interest is associated with firm fundamentals such as forthcoming EPS change and forthcoming revenue change, and such change in analyst interest is also associated with capital market activities such as the increase in analyst coverage, the increase in the number of institutional owners, and future stock returns. Taking advantage of a regulatory shock in 2012 that mandates firms to disclose site visits in a more timely manner, we further examine and find the association between analyst interest and firm’s fundamentals is more pronounced in the post-2012 period compared with the pre-2012 period. This lends credence to the analyst learning hypothesis. Overall, our results show that analysts obtain information about firm fundamentals through site visits, which offers a one-step-ahead advantage for analysts to understand firm’s fundamentals. This increase in analysts’ interest also has stock market implications.
