A Market-Based Evaluation of Discretionary-Accrual Models
Considerable research in accounting focuses on the role of accruals in capital market valuation and in contracting. The research shows accruals enable managers to improve on cash flows as a mesure of firm performance. However, since accruals provide managers with a means of managing reportedearnings, previous research also documents evidence of opportunistic accrual management. Opportunistic accruals are estimated using discretionary-accrual models that seek to separate earnings into discretionary accruals and nondiscretionary earnings.
