L’étude du remplacement du dirigeant emblématique de l’entreprise Carrefour, au début de l’année 2005, permet d’illustrer le rôle disciplinaire joué par les analystes financiers, ainsi que les effets pervers résultant de la pression exercée par ces derniers sur la qualité des états financiers. En effet, il apparaît que l’ancien dirigeant a géré les résultats à la hausse au cours des deux années précédentes, pour éviter d’annoncer une « mauvaise surprise » (un bénéfice de l’exercice inférieur aux bénéfices prévus par les analystes), alors que le nouveau dirigeant a eu tendance à « nettoyer » les comptes dès sa prise de fonction.
