Security Analysts and Market Reaction:Caveat for Monitoring


  • Rama Prasad Kanungo

    (Asian Accounting, Finance & Business Research Unit)


Security analysts, analyst forecast and market reaction are anecdotal in restructuring transactions, sometime conflicting and some other time imperative to the process of transaction. This article attempts to highlight a consistent association between analyst, market reaction and corporate restructuring. A close intermediation between those themes is analysed in this article, implying the relationship is contiguous. However issues of delayed price adjustment, conglomerate stock break-ups and negative earnings surprises are not discussed in this paper, though such factors are ingeniously important and crucial to the process of corporate restructuring.
