RECOMMENDATIONS: PRE- AND POST-CRISIS ANALYSIS FROM ASIAN EMERGING MARKETSDownload This Article
How does change in corporate governance regimes effect financial analysts? Are analysts able to incorporate the effect of better governance regimes in their recommendations? This paper aims to answer these questions by documenting the effect of corporate governance mechanisms on the performance of analysts‟ recommendations in Asian emerging markets during the pre-crisis and the post-crisis periods. Using a large dataset of analyst recommendations, we document that analysts were not able to generate informative recommendations during the post-crisis period (better governance regime). We report that performance of analyst recommendations deteriorated significantly during the post-crisis period relative to the pre-crisis period (poor governance regime). Our results indicate relative ineffectiveness of governance reforms initiated after the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98.
