“I shall return: The influence of firm framing and exit attributions on investor reactions to market re-entry decisions.”

Dr Zachary plans to present some of his research examining investor reactions to market re-entry – i.e., the decision by a firm to return to a market it previously exited. A number of members from the CFA Society participated in part of the study, and this presentation is an update on the findings. The title of the paper is “I shall return: The influence of firm framing and exit attributions on investor reactions to market re-entry decisions.”


Miles A. Zachary, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of management in the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business at Auburn University.
