Market Efficiency and Long-term Financing

  1. 1. Market Efficiency and Long-term Financing 7-
  2. 2. A $1 Investment in Different Types of Portfolios: 1926-1996 (Fig. 12.4) Index ($) $4,495.99 $33.73 $13.54 $8.85 $1,370.95 Small Company Stocks Large Company Stocks Long-Term Government Bonds Treasury Bills Inflation Year-End 7-
  3. 3. Market Efficiency <ul><li>An efficient capital market is one in which the purchase or sale of any security at the prevailing market price is a zero–NPV transaction. That is, you can expect to earn only a return adequate (‘normal return’) to compensate you for the risk you bear. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>In an Efficient Capital Market prices reflect all relevant information. You cannot consistently earn excess or ‘ abnormal’ profits . </li></ul>Market Efficiency Theory
  5. 5. Conditions needed for an Efficient Market <ul><li>A large number of rational investors (analysts, MBAs, CFAs) who seek to maximize their wealth </li></ul><ul><li>Information is widely available </li></ul><ul><li>Firms like Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, etc. spend lots of money to collect and analyze informatio </li></ul>
  6. 6. Market Efficiency Random Walk - Security prices change randomly, with no predictable trends or patterns. Does this mean prices remain always the same and won’t move? No !!!
  7. 7. Summary: Why are price changes random? <ul><li>Prices react to information </li></ul><ul><li>Flow of information is random </li></ul><ul><ul><li>by definition, otherwise news is not news! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Competition assures prices quickly and accurately reflect information </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, price changes are random </li></ul>
  8. 8. Three Forms of Market Efficiency <ul><li>Weak form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>current prices reflect past prices and patterns irrespective of the actual firm’s fundamentals </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Semi-strong form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>all public information (economic and accounting) is reflected in stock prices </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Strong form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>all information (public and private) is reflected in stock prices </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Technical Analysts - Investors who attempt to identify over- or undervalued stocks by searching for patterns in past prices. Head and Shoulders Triple Tops
  10. 10. Fundamental Analysts - Analysts who attempt to find under- or overvalued securities by analyzing fundamental information, such as earnings, asset values, and business prospects.
  11. 11. Reaction of Stock Price to New Information in Efficient and Inefficient Markets Efficient market reaction : The price instantaneously adjusts to and fully reflects new information; there is no tendency for subsequent increases and decreases. Delayed reaction : The price partially adjusts to the new information; 8 days elapse before the price completely reflects the new information Overreaction : The price over-adjusts to the new information; it “overshoots” the new price and subsequently corrects. Price ($) Days relative to announcement day – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 0 +2 +4 +6 +7 220 180 140 100 Overreaction and correction Delayed reaction Efficient market reaction Insider Information
  12. 12. Market Efficiency
  13. 13. The Bottom Line <ul><li>As a corporate financial manager (or investor) you should expect financing transactions (buying or selling of securities) to be a zero-NPV transaction. </li></ul><ul><li>To consistently produce value from your firm’s financing transactions would require either: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>consistently fooling investors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>constantly creating new securities </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Evidence on Market Efficiency <ul><li>Strong Form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>insider trading </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Semi-strong form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>event studies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>mutual fund performance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>anomalies </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Weak form </li></ul><ul><ul><li>technical analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>serial correlation and momentum </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Casual evidence indicates that mutual funds do not outperform market indices </li></ul><ul><li>WSJ stock picking contest (1990-1996) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pros won 44/77 times versus dart throwing monkeys </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pros won 40/77 times versus DJIA </li></ul></ul>Mutual Fund and Professional Manager Performance

  20. 20. Preferred Stock <ul><li>Cumulative versus Non-cumulative </li></ul><ul><li>Is preferred stock really debt? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Corporate seller's tax disadvantage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Unlike interest, dividends are not tax deductible </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Corporate buyer's tax advantage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>70% of dividend income received from other domestic firms are exempt from federal corporate taxation </li></ul></ul></ul>
  21. 21. Common Stock <ul><li>Par Value : some value assigned to stock for no particular reason. Most stocks have par values of $1.00 or $0.01 </li></ul><ul><li>Authorized versus Issued Common Stock: All shares to be sold must be authorized by the articles of the corporation. </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Paid in Capital (Capital in Excess of Par Value): usually refers to amounts of directly contributed equity capital in excess of par value. </li></ul><ul><li>Retained Earnings : Corporate earnings not paid out as dividends. </li></ul>

  23. 23. Shareholders' Voting Rights Assume 3 directors to be elected and you own 20 shares Straight Voting : Directors are elected one at a time You may cast all your votes for each member of the BOD 20 shares = 20 votes Cumulative Voting : Directors are elected all at once You may cast all your votes for one member of the BOD # votes = # shares × # directors to be elected: (20 shares) × (4 directors to be elected) = 60 votes For cumulative voting if N directors are to be elected, it takes 1/(N+1) percent of the stock + 1 share to assure a deciding vote for one director 25% of the shares + 1 share will guarantee you one deciding vote for 1 director
  24. 24. What differentiates Debt from Equity?
  25. 25. Patterns of Corporate Financing 1981 - 1992 Internally generated funds Long-term Debt New Equity Sales
  26. 26. Types of Equity Issues <ul><li>Private Direct Placement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Florida Panther Holdings, Inc., February 12, 1999 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Initial Public Offering (IPO) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ticketmaster Online, December 2, 1998 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;Will offer 7 million shares of common stock at $14&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Seasoned Equity Offering (SEO) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>American Online, Sept. 19, 1995 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;Will offer 3.5 million shares of common stock&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1.95 million by company; 1.55 million by its shareholders </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Rights Offer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Revco, April 1994 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ each stockholder as of June 13 will receive 0.305 of a transferable right for each Revco common share held.” </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. IPO’s: The Biggest Pops <ul><li>Nine of the 10 biggest first-day gains by IPOs were Internet stocks </li></ul><ul><li>Issuer Offering Date % Change </li></ul><ul><li>theglobe.com 11/12/98 474 </li></ul><ul><li>MarketWatch.com 1/15/99 471 </li></ul><ul><li>Broadcast.com 7/16/98 249 </li></ul><ul><li>EarthWeb 11/10/98 247 </li></ul><ul><li>Ticketmaster Online 12/2/98 243 </li></ul><ul><li>uBid 12/3/98 220 </li></ul><ul><li>Secure Computing 11/17/95 202 </li></ul><ul><li>Artificial Life 12/17/98 176 </li></ul><ul><li>eBay 9/24/98 163 </li></ul><ul><li>Yahoo! 4/12/96 154 </li></ul><ul><li>Source: The Wall Street Journal January, 1999 </li></ul>
  28. 28. Pricing of Initial Public Offerings Underpricing phenomenon: IPO's rise in value on first day of issue by an average of 15% Examples: In 1980, when Apple Computer went public, shares were offered at $22 per share and jumped to $36. Boston Chicken stock was offered at $20 per share and jumped to $49 on the first day of trading. Should you invest in each IPO given the average 15% return on an IPO during the first day?
  29. 29. Why Does Underpricing Occur? <ul><li>Helps sell issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Insurance against lawsuits </li></ul><ul><li>Helps avoid &quot;winner's curse&quot; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Uninformed small investors buy more of overpriced IPO’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Informed investors buy more of underpriced IPO’s </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. Stock Market Reaction to Seasoned Equity Offering On average stock prices fall. Why? - Management may know firm is overvalued - Management may know future earnings of the firm are going to be poor - Issuing equity may imply the firm has too much debt or too little equity - High issue costs - Downward sloping demand curves
  31. 31. Rights Offerings An issue of common stock to existing shareholders. &quot;privilege subscription&quot; Example : April 8, 1994, Revco to raise $217 Million Stockholders of record as of 6/13/94 will receive 0.305 transferable right for each share of stock Subscription price of $14 per share Rights to expire 7/7/94 Proceeds used to facilitate acquisition of Hook-SupeRx, Inc.
  32. 32. Value of Rights: The Individual Shareholder DOTCOM Corporation Rights Offer Design Corp. gives existing shareholders the opportunity to buy 1 additional share at $15 per share for 3 rights owned. 1 share includes 1 right. Current Share price=$30 - What is the ex-rights share price?0 - What is the value of a right before the offering? - What is the value of a right after the offering?
