This paper is to investigate the impacts of derivative warrants issuance from January,1997 to April, 2001 on both price and trading volumes of underlying stock around theannouncement date in Taiwan stock market. The ndings on price and trading volumesbehaviors suggest that there may be substantial purchases of the underlying stock by theissuers at one day before the announcement date of derivative warrants issuance for meetingthe hedging demand, and there may be substantial purchases of the underlying stock by theissuer/informed-trader for the last 10 minutes prior to market closure on the announcementdate of derivative warrants issuance for meeting price manipulating/information leaking de-mands. Nevertheless, the ndings on price and trading volumes also suggest that theremay convey an unfavorable signal about the reactions to the issuers’ perception of futureperformance of the underlying stock by the public investors during two days after the an-nouncement date of derivative warrants issuance, which underlying stock underperforms thewhole market.

ABSTRACT Are Tall People Less Risk Averse than Others? This paper examines the question of whether risk aversion of prime-age workers is negatively correlated with human height to a statistically significant degree. A variety of estimation methods, tests and specifications yield robust results that permit one to answer this question in the affirmative. Hausman-Taylor panel estimates, however, reveal that height effects disappear if personality traits and skills, parents’ behaviour, and interactions between environment and individual abilities appear simultaneously. Height is a good proxy for these influences if they are not observable. Not only one factor but a combination of several traits and interaction effects can describe the time-invariant individual effect in a panel model of risk attitude.

A very nice and easy to read paper regarding the valuation approaches used in finance
Valuation Approaches and Metrics: A Survey of the Theory and Evidence by Aswath Damodaran
Abstract: Valuation lies at the heart of much of what we do in finance, whether it is the study of market efficiency and questions about corporate governance or the comparison of different investment decision rules in capital budgeting. In this paper, we consider the theory and evidence on valuation approaches. We begin by surveying the literature on discounted cash flow valuation models, ranging from the first mentions of the dividend discount model to value stocks to the use of excess return models in more recent years. In the second part of the paper, we examine relative valuation models and, in particular, the use of multiples and comparables in valuation and evaluate whether relative valuation models yield more or less precise estimates of value than discounted cash flow models. In the final part of the paper, we set the stage for further research in valuation by noting the estimation challenges we face as companies globalize and become exposed to risk in multiple countries.
