Information Content of Insider Trading Around Corporate Announcements: The Case of Capital
Expenditure (Journal of Finance)
Co-author: Kose John

There was gathering evidence of insider-trading around corporate announcements of dividends, capital
expenditures, equity issues and repurchases and other capital structures changes. Although signaling
models have been used to explain the price reaction of these announcements, a usual assumption made
in these models is that insiders do not trade around these announcements. An innovative feature of this
paper is to model trading by corporate-insiders (subject to disclosure regulation) as one of the signals.
Detailed testable predictions are derived for the interaction of corporate-announcements and concurrent
insider-trading. In particular, such interaction is shown to depend crucially on whether the firm is a
growth firm, mature firm, or declining firm. Empirical proxies of firm's technology can be developed
using Tobin's q ratio. In the underlying "efficient" signaling equilibrium, capital-expenditure
announcements and insider-trading convey manager's private information to the market at least cost.
The paper also addresses issues pertaining to the relation between intensity of stock-price reaction and
variance of a firm's cash flows and risk-attitude of the manager. This is a unique model in market
microstructure wherein the informed insiders have an incentive to trade even after they make
announcements and wherein the insiders trade at fair prices (implying that they do not gain at the
expense of uninformed insiders). The paper A Test of the Insider-Trading Signaling Hypothesis: The
Case of Plant Closings by Gombola, Shih, and Tsetsekos finds support for some of our hypotheses.

Range Forward: A Hybrid of Forward and Options (Economic Times)

In this article, I explain what a range-forward (RF) is. An RF is a forward contract where the buyer and
the seller agree to trade within a range; the buyer gets the right to buy at predefined maximum price,
while the seller gets the right to sell at a prefixed minimum price. The RF is thus a combination of a
call and a put option. I suggest that RF, which was introduced by Salomon Brothers in foreign-
exchange contracts, can also be used in stock-markets. I use binomial option-pricing technique to price
a simple RF contract.

Raising Capital Through DCBs (Editorial Page, Economic Times)

In this article, I talk about a relatively novel financial-instrument, the Dual-Currency Bond (DCB). The
interest payments on a DCB is specified in one currency, while the principal is specified in another. I
suggest that DCBs with $-principal and Re-interest would be attractive to NRIs and can be used by
Indian firms to raise capital abroad. I offer different whistles and bells that can be used to make the
DCB more attractive to NRIs.

Advantage, Insider (Opposite Editorial Page, Economic Times)

Here, I discuss various facets of insider-trading. Starting with the pioneering theoretical work of
Friedrich von Hayek and my theoretical model (with Kose John) of insider-trading in financial-markets,
I go on to talk about legal issues in individual and institutional insider-trading. I end with a discussion
of insider-trading from the ethical perspectives of Richard George, David Gauthier, and John Rawls.

In this article, I discuss the evolution of Options Pricing Models over time, from Bachelier’s pioneering
work at the beginning of the century to the path-breaking-work of Fisher Black and Myron Scholes that
got the latter the Nobel Prize in Economics. I also highlight the contribution of the co-winner of the
Nobel Prize, Robert Merton. Wherever possible, I provide the economic rationale behind the
mathematical assumptions resorted to by different models.

Need for Symmetry (Economic Times, Mumbai)

In this article, which is based on my talk at the seminar on Financial Sector: Preconditions for
Marketisation (organised by the Indian Merchants’ Chamber and Times Guaranty Financials) I discuss
the role of information asymmetry in functioning of goods and capital markets. I point out how
markets may “break down” or may become inneficient in the presence of such asymmetry. I also point
out how, in some contexts, “signaling” may resolve the problem of asymmetry. I point out that such
asymmetry give rise to “information externality”, which may lead to credit-crunch in recessions. I also
briefly discuss the implications of such asymmetry on the market-structure and financial-contracts.
Moreover, I show that overinformation may sometimes be as bad as underinformation. I end with some
suggestions for improving accounting standards in India.

Hindustan Bro(o)ke the trust? (Editorial Page, Economic Times)

In this article, I take up the issue of SEBI charging some HLL directors with “insider trading” in shares
of Brooke-Bond-Lipton-India-Limited with Unit Trust of India. I discuss what can be termed as insider
information and insider trading and what cannot be in that takeover context. I also point out how
compensation to UTI should be calculated in case it is found to be an aggrieved party.

Working Papers

Why Do Managers Issue Callable Convertibles?
Co-author: M.P. Narayanan, University of Michigan

In this paper, we show why managers in US issue callable-convertible-debt even though both the
announcement of such an issuance and the issuance itself leads to a negative stock-price reaction.
Building on a sequential-signaling model, we show that some managers who have received a bad signal
about the future cash flow of the firm will find it preferable to issue CCD to issuing equity, debt, or
NCD (non-callable convertible debt). This is the first paper to provide a theoretical justification for
issuing CCD. Our model is also consistent with the observation that stock-price falls when CCDs are
called. Interestingly, rationale for issuing CCD is quite simple: it offers optimal risk-sharing between
the existing stockholders (including managers who own stocks) and the new claimholders. Risk-averse
managers prefer equity the most, CCD the second most, and NCD the least. On the other hand, the risk-
averse new claimholders prefer NCD the most, while their choice between CCD and equity depends on
their magnitude of risk-aversion. By issuing CCD, the managers decrease the value of their stake in the
firm, but increase the amount of capital raised, which in turn, impacts positively on their wealth.



Why Should We Prefer the Mean-LPM Rule to the Mean-Variance Rule?



                                                                                                      18
In this paper, I derive an important result pertaining to the risk-measure of financial assets. I show that
the class of return distributions which justify the use of variance as a risk-measure also produces the
same optimal portfolio if we use LPM (lower-partial-moment) as the risk measure. If return-distribution
does not belong to this class, using LPM produces more correct optimal portfolio. LPM is intuitively
more appealing since it considers only downside risk. At the same time, it generates a security-market-
line, with the LPM-beta substituting the variance-based-beta. This model may help explain why small-
firms garner higher abnormal-returns than the others. I am experimenting with Indian data.

Endogenized Information Structure and Revelation

In this paper, I consider a scenario where a firm's manager faces the dual task of voluntarily undertaking
monitoring expenditures to solve the agency problem and of resolving the residual uncertainty regarding
the firm's technology by signaling with some activity observed by the outsider shareholders. I show that
the level of monitoring-expenditure, which solves the agency problem, can also resolve the
informational asymmetry that exists between insider-managers (who know about the firm's technology)
and uninformed outsiders.



On the Design of Convertible Bonds
Co-authors: A. Arun Kumar, First Boston Corporation & M.P. Narayanan, University of Michigan

This paper examines the implications of agency theory, asymmetric-information theories, and managers'
rationale for design of convertible bonds. Using 1968-1988 data, we find that, consistent with agency
theory and asymmetric model, firms with increased probability of financial distress issue convertibles
with higher equity component. Also, volatility of cash flows of firms that issue convertibles with low
equity component drops after the issue, which contradicts the asymmetric-information theories, which
view convertibles as vehicle to signal the variance of the firm's cash flows. In addition, we find that
greater the increase in interest rates, the lower the equity component, which is consistent with the
managers' rationale for reducing interest costs. Finally, we find that the greater the pre-issue run up in
stock-returns, the lower the relative-equity-component of a convertible, consistent with managers'
rationale of using convertible as "delayed equity". We, however, do not find any relationship between
convertible parameters and post-issue stock-returns.

Pricing of Forward and Futures Contract on Portfolio Assets
Co-authors: Marti Subrahmanyam, Stern School, New York University & Tom Urich, Banker’s Trust
Corporation

In contrast to the previous work that studied the relationship between forward and futures contract on
treasury bills, this study focused on portfolio-assets like gold and silver. Using a general model of
futures-pricing, we developed several testable hypotheses about the futures-forward relationship and
futures-spot ratios. Our result supports the broad hypotheses that futures-spot ratio is a function of
interest-rate. However, the influences of institutional characteristics of the markets and the imperfect
integration of the futures and spot markets may cause the ratio to vary across portfolio assets.




Evaluating Performance of Consumer Loans
Co-author: Dr. Amit Sur, Vice President, Chemical Bank, New York



                                                                                                        19
Using database of a large commercial bank, we developed a model to help the bank manage its
consumer-loan portfolio. Using simple statistical techniques, we found out that certain characteristics
(e.g. payment delay) of customers can predict reasonably well the probability of the account becoming a
delinquent one. Using a weighted average of these variables (some of them are binary), we compute a
score for each account-holder. And, unlike other models, we develop a "probability" of the account
becoming delinquent. This score - which we call the performance score - can help a manager keep a
continuous tab on accounts, reducing credit-lines of low-score accounts and increasing for high-score
accounts.


Product Differentiation Under Monopoly and Competition

In his pioneering work on product-attributes, Kelvin Lancaster demonstrated that monopolist would
offer as many product varieties as would a competitive market. But, many subsequent research argued
that, if the profit-maximizing monopolist can discriminate among buyers, (s)he would provide less
varieties. None of these papers, however, derived conditions under which the monopolist would not
provide optimal varieties. In this paper, with relatively weak assumptions, I show that, if individuals
have different degree of "quality-sensitivity" (QS), then the monopolist may not provide any variety to
individuals with low QS if, at the point corresponding to the inferior variety, the individuals with high
QS have a higher elasticity of sensitivity with respect to change in quality.


Articles


Range Futures
In this article, I introduced a new financial instrument called Range Futures, which is a novel way of
marking a “range forward” contract to the market. I showed that this way of marking-to-market may be
not only very simple, but also economical to parties involved.


WORK IN PROGRESS

Indian Bond-Rating Standards
Coresearcher: Dr. Sankarshan Acharya, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA

The standard asset-pricing paradigm is applied to measure a credit-rating agency’s implied rating
standards, such as leverage and asset volatility, from observed bond-yield spread data. The
methodology is to measure the amount of debt that an Indian firm needs to reduce to enhance its credit
quality (as reflected in bond-rating) without changing its asset risk and size. This methodology can also
be applied to develop implementable bank-capital and deposit-insurance-premium standards based on
ratings of pools of bonds held by banks in equilibrium within a paradigm (an alternative to narrow
banking and consistent with universal banking) in which regulators act like private surrogates of bank-
debtholders, insuring debt for a price but not for profit, and banks choose their asset composition.

EVA: Some Reflections

In this paper, I look at EVA from some new perspectives to make it more amenable to be used in
valuation and evaluation exercises.

Evaluating Mutual Fund Performance using Lower Partial Moment


                                                                                                      20
Coauthor: Mahmud Rahman, University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University

It is therefore imperative to develop and apply risk-adjusted portfolio-evaluation measures based on the
LPM-based CAPM (LPM-CAPM). Kochman (1999) has, in fact, recognized the importance of using
downside-risk measures in portfolio-evaluation. In this paper, we develop such measures; as expected,
these new measures look similar to the traditional ones mentioned above. We also provide a new way
to evaluate the performance of a portfolio, which is similar to the M2 [Modigliani-Modigliani (1997)]
approach, but differs from it in an important way. We combine the portfolio to be evaluated with the
risk-free asset, so that the new pseudo-portfolio has the same mean as the market-portfolio (not the same
risk as M2 does). Now that these two portfolios are on the same return footing, we compare their risks.
The beauty of this approach is that we can look at more than one measure of risk simultaneously,
without having to adjust the weights in the pseudo-portfolio. Using various measures of risk, we can
compare the risk of the pseudo-portfolio (representing the portfolio under consideration) to that of the
market portfolio and observe how it varies with the different risk-measures. We can also compare the
weighted-average-risks that may be useful in certain circumstances, like when half of a portfolio-
manager's clients want to look at the total risk (as they put all their money solely with this manager),
while the other half looks only at the beta-risk. As we mentioned earlier, we would have two different
betas, one based on the mean-variance CAPM and the other on the LPM-CAPM.

We use our new measures and approach to compare different portfolios in the Asia-Pacific area and to
compare their performances with USA portfolios. Some interesting work has already been done in this
area by Marchand (1990) and Montagu-Pollock and Murphy (1990). Marchand's findings that Asia-
Pacific portfolios generally did well in bull-markets and poorly in bear-markets is of significance to us,
as the LPM risk-measure focuses on similar trends, though with respect to a risk-free index.

Default Risk and Debt Financing: Some Insights
Coresearcher: M. P. Narayanan, University of Michigan, USA

In this theoretical paper, we develop a new model to handle default-risk through debt-financing. We
also look at empirical-data to ferret out whether some of the implications of our model are corroborated
by empirical data.

EOQ Model Revisited

In this paper, I have shown that, even if we account for time-value-of-money, the EOQ can be
determined by solving an equation through iterative procedure (no closed-form solution exists). I will
test the usefulness of the model with some hypothetical numerical examples.

IPO Performance: Subsidiaries versus Entrepreneurial Ventures
Coresearcher: Jayesh Kumar

In this paper, we analyze whether transaction cost of raising new capital (e.g. investment-bankers’ fee)
through an IPO is different for firms that are subsidiaries of established firms and those that are just
new-age entrepreneurs. We also try to ferret out whether the difference is sector specific.

Country Sensitiveness: How Indian Firms’ Beta Vary with Foreign Indices
Coresearcher: Dr. Mahmud Rahman, Eastern Michigan University, USA

This paper is under construction. In this paper, we analyse how the betas of Indian firms that have
strong presence in other countries vary with the stock-indices of those countries. We further analyse



                                                                                                       21
whether these betas depend upon the extent of India’s trade with these countries. We also investigate
whether the overseas share price (typically ADR or GDR) of the company responds more to the
variability in its overseas earnings in the foreign-currency or its rupee earnings. During the study of the
above issues, we analyse whether, over time, the Indian share indices have got more correlated with the
global indices and the indices of India’s trading partners. The study may have important implications
for the pricing of ADR/GDR and for international diversification.

PROPOSED

Price-Earnings Ratios of Indian Firms: An Analysis

In pricing shares, one approach has been to use industry P/E ratios. It has some drawbacks, however.
First of all, to the extent that price depends on actual cash-flows, price-to-cash-flow may be a superior
ratio than P/E. Second, a priori, it appears to be a mistake to use industry P/E-ratios, whether for IPOs
or for seasoned shares. A firm's P/E should typically be a function of the following factors: (1) expected
growth in the firm's cash flows, (2) its debt-equity ratio, (3) its operating leverage, and (4) variability in
its sales. Sales-variability is influenced, inter alia, by the type of its products (e.g. consumer durable or
not), availability of substitutes for its products, importance of its products (e.g essential commodity or a
luxury item), the firm's monopoly power, geographic location (small town or big metropolis), and
characteristics of its clientele (rich or middle class). In this project, I will take a cross-section of Indian
firms and determine whether the above variables explain the differences in P/E-ratios across firms. I
will also ferret out the variables that actually affect P/E and the relative importance of each variable.


Risk and Returns of Stocks and Bonds in India

In this paper, I will study the risk and return from investment in bonds and stocks in Indian capital
market. I will try to decipher if interesting patterns in return exist. Using cointegration-analysis, I will
determine whether stocks in India have been a good hedge against inflation. Second, I will try to
determine the correlation between return on Indian stocks and those on foreign stocks and analyze if the
correlation has increased over time. Third, I will check whether the beta of important Indian scrips are
significantly lower from the perspective of a foreign investor (one holding a global portfolio) vis-à-vis
that of an Indian investor who is not allowed to hold foreign scrips. I will also check if betas are
constant across time. Lastly, I will check how well the market-indices represent the overall change in
the economy.




Financial Innovations in Money and Capital Markets in India

In this project, we plan to analyze the details of all the financial innovations that have been implemented
in India. It will range from lease-securitization to diff-swaps and from commercial-papers to euro-
convertible-bonds. Besides finding out the advantages to both the issuer and the investors, we will
study the complete process leading to the choice of a specific new financial-instrument. We will
analyze the aftermath of the transaction and evaluate whether, in hindsight, the innovation was a good
move for the company. The project would be of enormous help to the Indian corporations who are
planning to raise capital from within the country and abroad.

A Return Generating Model for Indian Securities


                                                                                                            22
How the stock prices are determined in Indian bourses still remains an enigma for many. Though
several researchers have tried to fit CAPM and similar models to Indian data, attempts have not been
made to fit a wide array of models to share prices. I will study if any of the following can explain the
risk-return relationship for Indian shares: (1) CAPM, (2) Gibbon's Multivariate Model, (3) Arbitrage
Pricing Theory, (4) Three-moment Asset-pricing Model, (5) Mean-Lower-Partial-Moment Approach,
and (6) the Quadratic Market Model. Alternatively, I will check whether there exist non-risk-based
explanations based on presence of market frictions or irrational investors or due to biases in computing
returns. If any of these models can explain the risk-return relationship in India reasonably well, that
would be a very significant contribution.
