En undersökning av sambandet mellan upplysningskvalitet och aktieprisättning : En kvantitativ studie om effektiv prissättning av aktievärde
Sammanfattning: The annual report works as a source of information and basis for decision making for investors where disclosure quality varies between different companies. There is an inherent problem in a conflict of interest between the principal and agent where disclosure quality might suffer because of hidden negative information in ambiguous reasoning. Lower disclosure quality contributes to the annual report not pertaining a fair economic picture which leads to an information gap between companies and investors. The note section in the annual report is eminently important to be able to provide a correct economic analysis to the market. Through measurements of disclosure quality in the note section of the annual report with the help of Fogindex where readability is determined, this study explores the correlation between disclosure quality and misvaluation of the companies’ stocks. Additionally, the study examines if the correlation is strengthened splitting the companies into divisions based on competition of an industry. The result of the study indicates a negative correlation between disclosure quality and misvalution av company stocks. The study cannot indicate that the correlation is strengthened when competition is taken into consideration. The study has been written in Swedish.
