Public Lecture: Identifying and profiting from the vacation schedules of major company CEOs : Professor David L. Yermack Other events...
What happens when chief executives go on vacation? In this lecture, New York University Stern School of Business Professor David Yermack will show how to identify vacations of CEOs by tracking movements of their corporate jets to leisure destinations where they own property. CEOs tend to announce favourable news for investors just before leaving and just after returning from vacation. While they are away, companies disclose little information, stock prices behave quietly with lower volatility than usual, and companies are more likely to miss regulatory deadlines for disclosing news. All of these patterns create trading opportunities for investors. The data show that even in very large organisations, the absence or presence of a single individual can affect daily operations.
