Family Controlled Firms: Information content in Schedule 13D Filings
Seidman College of Business
This research study examines the signaling effect of stock acquisitions and dispositions that are reported on 13D and 13A filings for Family Controlled Firms (FCFs). This allows for the examination of complex signals that other research has been limited from studying. In general, we argue that family-based disposition of stock that is reported along with a purpose of transaction that identifies reasons other than liquidity or diversification should be associated with higher negative performance in the period after the trade.
