    A firm's performance and its dividend policy 

    Prates do Amaral, Adriano; Aekkachai Nittayagasetwat (National Institute of Development Administration, 2016)

    Dividend smoothing is a well-known empirical phenomenon which is extensively described and analyzed in the financial literature. However, the motivation behind this widespread firm's policy is not totally understood. The signaling approach is one model employed to explain dividend smoothing: managers reduce information asymmetry between firm insiders and other stakeholders by maintaining dividends stable, thus signaling their confidence in the firm's future performance.

    Oraphan Nakmahachalasint; Kanogporn Narktabtee (National Institute of Development Administration, 2017)

    The adoption and implementation of accrual accounting in Thailand was influenced by the 1997 financial crisis in Asia and was endorsed by international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. As argued by most researchers in public sector accounting that accrual accounting is superior to cash basis of accounting, accrual accounting information and financial statements would enhance the transparency and accountability of the government.

The first part of this dissertation offers an integrated view of methods to calculate CLV considering scenarios ranging from finite-and-infinite customer lifetimes to customer migration and Monte Carlo simulation models.

    Asset pricing on Thailand & Malaysia stock exchange: on the use of macroeconomic and behavioral factors 

    French, Jordan Alexander; Tatchawan Kanitpong (National Institute of Development Administration, 2017)

Those variables are risk premium, industrial production, term structure, expected inflation, and unexpected inflation.

    Capital structure and market power 

    Prajya Ngamjan; Aekkachai Nittayagasetwat (National Institute of Development Administration, 2016)

    Employing a sample set of 289 Thai listed firms during 2005-2014, the research found that leverage leads to increasing market power as measured by Tobin’s Q and sales growth. The explanation is given by the limited liability theory; that is, a firm employs debt as a commitment tool to compete aggressively in product markets. The main finding remained robust through different leveraged firms/groups, different market concentration groups, different time periods, and in different industrial sectors. Additionally, leverage had stronger effects ...

    CEO reputations and dividend payouts 

    Danai Likitratcharoen; Tatchawan Kanitpong, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2011)

    Over the past decades, there have been numerous discussions about the influence of dividend policy and the value of firms. In many of the literature in this field, frameworks have been developed to show that dividend policy has implications for firms’ value in the imperfect and inefficient capital markets. If dividend policy has an influence on the firm’s value, then it is worth exploring the factors that have an influence on dividend policy. Past literature has found a large number of firm-specific variables as the determinants of dividend policy. ...

    Earnings management and firm value : the role of investor protection and corporate governance 

    Nopphon Tangjitprom; Kanogporn Narktabtee, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2012)

    Earnings management usually refers to the efforts of firm managers or executives to manipulate the earning figures in financial reporting. In general, these activities can be perceived negatively, as they can stem from managerial opportunism. Managers can use earnings management to report earnings for their own benefit, e.g. to get advantage from their compensation plans. However, some may argue that managers can use earnings management techniques to communicate or convey certain information and to smooth the earnings to reduce volatility. ...

In Chapter 2, the long-run relationship between stock prices and dividends is investigated. The null hypothesis of no cointegration using both the Engle-Granger and Johansen cointegration tests cannot be rejected; however, when the structural break is addressed, the Gregory-Hansen cointegration test reports the significant evidence of the long-run relationship between stock prices and ...

Dividends have continued to be famously debated by scholars for almost a century. On various perspectives, many scholars have debated back and forth on their relevancy to firm performance and value.
