The impact of banks' financial statements publication on their market capitalization (The B.S.E. Case)


  • Ioan TRENCA

    (Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca)


Conceived as an empirical study, the paper investigates investors’ behavior as a reaction to the publication of financial statements by the three commercial banks listed on Bucharest Stock Exchange (B.S.E.): BRD, BCC and TLV. Starting from the general framework of an event study analysis (ESA), the empirical research is doubled by two personal contributions to the ESA methodology represented by a parameters’ generalization module and one for optimizing internal variables. This modified methodology was run using personally-developed software (EvStud1.1), the main conclusion, inferred from a sample of 54 events, being the significant impact of financial statements’ publication on banks’ stock prices.
