Abstract

ABSTRACT. The purpose of this quantitative, correlative, and survey-based study was to determinewhether the use of fair value accounting by publicly-listed companies in Turkey and Romania wasassociated with significant variation in investors‘ (1) optimism about increases in the company‘sstock price, (2) likelihood of buying more stock, and (3) evaluation of the company‘s transparency.After controlling for company size, industry, and geographic location, it was found that the use offair value accounting is associated with higher investor optimism about stock prices and increasedlikelihood of investors buying more stock. Investors‘ evaluations of company transparency did notvary according to whether the company used fair value accounting. Furthermore, based oncountry-specific analysis, it was concluded that Turkey is justified in its more aggressive adoptionof fair value accounting whereas Romania ought to move towards both IFRS in general and fairvalue accounting in particular. This conclusion was justified by data analysis revealing thatTurkish companies are larger are more profitable than Romanian companies in the same industries.
