Economic Forecasting With Many Predictors, Fanning Meng 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Economic Forecasting With Many Predictors, Fanning Meng

Doctoral Dissertations

The dissertation is focused on the analysis of economic forecasting with a large number of predictors.

The first chapter develops a novel forecasting method that minimizes the effects of weak predictors and estimation errors on the accuracy of equity premium forecasts. The proposed method is based on an averaging scheme applied to quantiles conditional on predictors selected by LASSO. The resulting forecasts outperform the historical average, and other existing models, by statistically and economically meaningful margins.

In the second chapter, we find that incorporating distributional and high-frequency information into a forecasting model can produce substantial accuracy gains. Distributional information is ...

Continuous Top-K Monitoring On Document Streams, Leong Hou U, Junjie Zhang, Kyriakos Mouratidis, Ye Li

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

The efficient processing of document streams plays animportant role in many information filtering systems. Emerging applications,such as news update filtering and social network notifications, demandpresenting end-users with the most relevant content to their preferences. Inthis work, user preferences are indicated by a set of keywords. A centralserver monitors the document stream and continuously reports to each user thetop-k documents that are most relevant to her keywords. Our objective is tosupport large numbers of users and high stream rates, while refreshing thetop-k results almost instantaneously. Our solution abandons the traditionalfrequency-ordered indexing approach. Instead, it follows an identifier-orderingparadigm that suits better ...

A Learning Framework For The Ywca Central Massachusetts, Dayna Ankermann, Manjushree Burdekar, Priyanka Joshi, Ying Song, Yumeng Chen, Xing Xie

School of Professional Studies

After meeting with the Director of Wellness and Health Equity at the YWCA Central Massachusetts (which will be referred to as the YWCA from here on out), we learned that as a non-profit gym and health center, it is heavily underfunded. The main focus of the project was to determine how to upkeep the facility while bringing in new customers with limited resources and budget. Due to the needs of the YWCA, our group focused on six aspects: revenue stream, donor retention, increasing membership, customer experience, social media marketing, and membership fee structure. After completing extensive research, we were able ...

Learning In Hybrid-Project Systems: The Effects Of Project Performance On Repeated Collaboration, Andreas Schwab, Anne S. Miner 2017 Iowa State University

Learning In Hybrid-Project Systems: The Effects Of Project Performance On Repeated Collaboration, Andreas Schwab, Anne S. Miner

Andreas Schwab

This study advances contingency theories of performance-outcome learning in hybrid-project systems, in which both project participants and superordinate organizations influence the formation of project ventures. We propose that performance-outcome learning depends on the perceived relevance of prior performance and on organizational control over project participants. We examine this framework using data on 239 U.S. movie projects from the years 1931-40. In keeping with our theory, higher project performance led to future collaborations with the same partners, contingent on prior collaborations, project similarity, and organizational control. Our findings imply distinct patterns of network evolution and unfolding adaptation of hybrid-project systems ...


The Creation Of A Building Map Application For A University Setting, William T. Whitesell 2017 Liberty University

The Creation Of A Building Map Application For A University Setting, William T. Whitesell

Senior Honors Theses

The use of navigational technology in mobile and web devices has sharply increased in recent years. With the capability to create interactive maps now available, navigating in real time between locations has become possible. This is especially essential in areas and organizations experiencing rapid expansion like Liberty University (LU). Therefore, the author proposes a project to create an interactive map application (IMA) for LU’s academic buildings that is scalable and usable through both the university’s website and with a mobile application. There are several considerations that must be taken into account when creating the LU map application, such ...

Multi-Generation Product Diffusion In The Presence Of Strategic Consumers, Zhiling GUO, Jianqing CHEN 2017 Singapore Management University

Multi-Generation Product Diffusion In The Presence Of Strategic Consumers, Zhiling Guo, Jianqing Chen

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Frequent new product releases pose significant challenges for firms as they manage successive generations of product diffusion. We develop an analytical model to study the effect of different purchase options by strategic consumers on a firm's profit and the firm's strategies for the timing and pricing of its successive generations of product diffusion. We show that consumers' strategic behavior, although adversely affecting the sales of the first-generation product, positively influences the sales of the second-generation product through an initial “seeding” effect. The influence of strategic consumers on profit and sales depends largely on the discount-to-price ratio of the ...


An Analysis Of The Renewable Energy Industry: Lagging Indicators In The Legal, Infrastructural, And Economic Forces, Alina Sigitova 2017 Pittsburg State University

An Analysis Of The Renewable Energy Industry: Lagging Indicators In The Legal, Infrastructural, And Economic Forces, Alina Sigitova

Paper Presentations

The Renewable Energy industry is one of the most pivotal economic movements. As more companies shift to the corporate sustainability model, this shift must be supported by using alternative form of fuels which will not negatively impact the current and future environment and also preserve resources for future generations. However, the renewable energy industry has lagged. By examining history and status quo of the industry and the relationships between the legal, infrastructural, and economic structures surrounding it, a clearer understanding of what is holding back the industry may be gained and potential solutions may be discussed.

Data Analytics As A Conduit For Progressing Information Systems Research In Nonprofit Organizations, Karthikeyan Umapathy, Amy J. Connolly 2017 James Madison University

Data Analytics As A Conduit For Progressing Information Systems Research In Nonprofit Organizations, Karthikeyan Umapathy, Amy J. Connolly

Karthikeyan Umapathy

This position paper reviews the existing information systems (IS) research literature related to the nonprofit context and recommends how to significantly progress this research. The conducted literature review shows that very few studies have focused on nonprofit organizations (NPO). Our analysis indicates that IS researchers have investigated a limited number of issues in NPO contexts including potential research frameworks, strategic use of websites, the role of IS leadership, data management, IS adoption, IS use, and information security policies. Non-IS researchers have examined IS adoption, accountability, and social media usage. Studies that address IS use in the nonprofit context lack theoretical ...
