Economic Events, Information Structure, and the Return-Generating Process
The parameters of the return process of a firm are determined by two elements—the natural event structure , i.e., the process by which nature affects the value of the firm, and the information structure , i.e., the process by which information about these events is collected and disseminated to investors.
