The Exchange-Rate Exposure of U.S. Multinationals
This article examines the exposure of U.S multinationals to foreign currency risk. Evidence is presented that the relationship between stock returns and exchange rates differs systematically across multinationals. Given these results, the study focuses on the determinants of exchange-rate exposure. The comovements between stock returns and the value of the dollar is found to be positively related to the percentage of foreign operations of U.S. multinationals.
