Rafael Rogo, PhD

We develop measurement theory and method to examine the translation of economic activity into disclosure. We find evidence the content of the year-over-year modifications to the MD&A are tightly connected to changes in financial statement items and ratios. We construct measures of the expected disclosure based on industry standard disclosure for a given level of economic activity as captured by the accounting system, as well as deviations from this expectation, and examine how the market incorporates these facets of disclosure. Our evidence indicates that while in general the market correctly interprets the sign of the news revealed in disclosure modifications, the price delay and the extent of the incorporation of disclosure varies with the type of modifications.
