Tobin's q-Ratio and Market Reaction to Capital Investment Announcements
There is a significant positive relation between Tobin's q-ratio and the magnitude of stock market reaction to capital investment announcements. The findings have the following implications for capital investment theory: (i) the results provide evidence substantiating the link between the q-ratio and real investment for industrial firms. For public utilities however, no such link exists. (ii) The study finds that average q and marginal q are correlated but the relation is somewhat more complicated than simple quality as assumed by numerous empirical studies. (iii) The findings suggest that investors can use average Tobin's q-ratio to identify companies with profitable real capital investment opportunities. Copyright 1997 by MIT Press.
