When Is A Dog’S Tail Not A Leg?: A Property-Based Methodology For Distinguishing Sales Of Receivables From Security Interests That Secure An Obligation, Steven L. Harris, Charles W. Mooney Jr. 2014 University of Pennsylvania Law School

When Is A Dog’S Tail Not A Leg?: A Property-Based Methodology For Distinguishing Sales Of Receivables From Security Interests That Secure An Obligation, Steven L. Harris, Charles W. Mooney Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

There are two principal ways in which a firm that is owed money payable in the future but needs the money now may use its rights to payment (“receivables”) to obtain the needed financing. It might sell its receivables, or it might borrow and use the receivables as collateral to secure the loan. Different legal consequences follow depending on whether the transaction is a true sale or is a security interest that secures an obligation (a “SISO”).


These legal consequences are particularly salient when the firm enters bankruptcy. If the transaction is a sale, then the buyer can collect the ...


Do Market Anomalies Add Up?, Larissa C. Steinfeldt 2014 East Tennessee State University

Do Market Anomalies Add Up?, Larissa C. Steinfeldt

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This is a study about abnormal characteristics in the stock market and how to successfully use them in personal portfolios. Market anomalies are unexpected excess returns that occur in relation to certain variables. Five commonly known market anomalies (market cap, price-earnings ratio, price-book value, momentum, volatility) are tested to give evidence for their presence. Existing variables are then combined in different portfolios in order to observe whether they generate greater excess returns combined rather than individually. This study will also reveal whether long-term holding is possible and how the anomalies react in bullish and bearish markets.

Dollar Shortage, Central Bank Actions, And The Cross Currency Basis, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa, Suresh Sundaresan 2014 SelectedWorks

Dollar Shortage, Central Bank Actions, And The Cross Currency Basis, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa, Suresh Sundaresan

Jaime Luque

Cross-currency basis, which captures the deviations from covered interest rate parity, reflects the relative value of the scarcer currency (US dollars) as collateral in the funding constraints faced by European banks. The October 15 2008 announcement by the ECB that all bids for US dollars by European banks would be fully allotted represented an autonomous increase in the supply of US dollars. Treating this announcement as an exogenous event, we show that the basis significantly narrowed after the ECB announcement. We also show that the shortage during 2010-2012 is primarily driven by ECB's penalty rates as opposed to quantity ...


Single Point Of Entry And The Bankruptcy Alternative, David A. Skeel Jr. 2014 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Single Point Of Entry And The Bankruptcy Alternative, David A. Skeel Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

This Essay, which will appear in Across the Great Divide: New Perspectives on the Financial Crisis, a Brookings Institution and Hoover Institution book, begins with a brief overview of concerns raised by the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy about the adequacy of our existing architecture for resolving the financial distress of systemically important financial institutions. The principal takeaway of the first section is that Title II as enacted left most of these issues unanswered. By contrast, the FDIC’s new single point of entry strategy, which is introduced in the second section, can be seen as addressing nearly all of them. The ...

Moral Hazard And Arson: Evidence From Decreases In Local House Prices, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson 2014 SelectedWorks

Moral Hazard And Arson: Evidence From Decreases In Local House Prices, Michael D. Eriksen, James M. Carson

Michael D Eriksen

We assembled data on the determined cause of 5.9 million fires in the United States between 1980 and 2010 to test whether decreases in local housing market prices coincide with increases in arson. Since moral hazard may lead some insured homeowners to disguise the actual cause as accidental, we also examine how decreases in local house prices are associated with the probability of determined causes of accidental fires. We find evidence that declines in local house prices coincided with increases in the per capita rate of fires and the probability of fires determined due to arson or accidental due ...


Facilitating Successful Failures, Michelle M. Harner, Jamie Marincic Griffin 2014 University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

Facilitating Successful Failures, Michelle M. Harner, Jamie Marincic Griffin

Faculty Scholarship

Approximately 80,000 businesses fail each year in the United States. This article presents an original empirical study of over 400 business restructuring professionals focused on a critical, arguably contributing factor to these failures—the conduct of boards of directors and management. Anecdotal evidence suggests that management of distressed companies often bury their heads in the sand until it is too late to remedy the companies’ problems, a phenomenon commonly called “ostrich syndrome.” The data confirm this behavior, show a prevalent use of loss framing, and suggest trends consistent with prospect theory. The article draws on these data and behavioral ...

New Models Of Private Sector Financing Of Not-For-Profit Corporations, Steven H. Mosenson 2014 Northeastern University

New Models Of Private Sector Financing Of Not-For-Profit Corporations, Steven H. Mosenson

Law and Policy Doctoral Theses

States have taken several approaches to facilitate private sector investment in nonprofit corporations providing social services. These approaches include (a) fostering the creation of socially conscious, for-profit business entities that can fulfill a social purpose or invest resources in joint ventures with nonprofit corporations; (b) promoting private capital financing vehicles, such as social impact bonds, which incorporate incentives for enhanced return based upon the funded social program's attainment of specified measurable goals, and ( c) promoting public-private partnerships and joint ventures between private sector entity partners and nonprofit corporations to provide capital for investment in the nonprofit corporation's infrastructure ...


Ethics And Market Economic System: A General Review And A Survey, Reza G. Hamzaee 2014 Walden University

Ethics And Market Economic System: A General Review And A Survey, Reza G. Hamzaee

International Journal of Applied Management and Technology

Recent global recession has motivated this predominantly historical and exploratory research of thoughts and perceptions. A continuous planning of governmental correction of any market failure, such as various types of externalities and information asymmetry, has been strongly recommended by the pioneers of free enterprise systems. Capitalism—in which private ownership of means of production, physical capital, human capital, financial capital, brand-name capital, social capital, land, and mineral deposits are all protected by law without implementation of a series of certain evolving ethical standards and principles—may not continue to be the same efficient system as implied to be by the ...


Local Business Cycles And Local Liquidity, Gennaro BERNILE, George Korniotis, Alok Kumar, Qin Wang 2014 Singapore Management University

Local Business Cycles And Local Liquidity, Gennaro Bernile, George Korniotis, Alok Kumar, Qin Wang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This paper shows that the geographical location of a firm affects its liquidity. Specifically, firm liquidity is higher (lower) when the local economy performs well (poorly) and this effect is more pronounced among larger firms. Further, the impact of local economic conditions on local firm liquidity is stronger when local financing constraints are more binding, the local information environment is more opaque, and local institutional ownership levels are higher. This geographical variation in local liquidity generates predictable patterns in local stock returns. Local stock prices decline and future returns are higher when local liquidity is lower. A trading strategy based ...

Do Loan Loss Reserves Behave Like Capital? Evidence From Recent Bank Failures, Jeffrey Tee Yong NG, Sugata Roychowdhury 2014 Singapore Management University

Do Loan Loss Reserves Behave Like Capital? Evidence From Recent Bank Failures, Jeffrey Tee Yong Ng, Sugata Roychowdhury

Research Collection School Of Accountancy

Regulatory capital guidelines allow for loan loss reserves to be added back as capital. The evidence in this paper suggests that the influence of loan loss reserves added back as regulatory capital (hereafter referred to as “add-backs”) on bank risk cannot be explained by either economic principles underlying the notion of capital, or accounting principles underlying the recording of reserves. Specifically, we observe that in sharp contrast to the economic notion of capital as a buffer against bank failure risk, add-backs are positively associated with the risk of bank failure during the recent economic crisis. Further the positive association of ...

Taxing Audit Markets And Reputation: An Examination Of The U.S. Tax Shelter Controversy, John Incardona, Yezen Kannan, Ronald Premuroso, Julia L. Higgs, Ivy Huang 2014 University of Montana

Taxing Audit Markets And Reputation: An Examination Of The U.S. Tax Shelter Controversy, John Incardona, Yezen Kannan, Ronald Premuroso, Julia L. Higgs, Ivy Huang

Accounting and Finance Faculty Publications

From 2002 to 2007, the nation’s largest CPA firms faced allegations of illegal activity related to the sale of tax shelters: EY, KPMG and PwC paid fines; KPMG was investigated by a federal grand jury; and EY faced a criminal inquiry. These shelter events occurred shortly after the 2002 collapse of Arthur Andersen, when policy makers were concerned about audit market concentration. This is the first paper to provide a chronological summary of how the tax shelter controversy started and ended. We investigate the stock market reaction to tax shelter news developments between 2003 and 2005 to make inferences ...
