Family Controlled Firms: Information Content in Schedule 13D Filings
Seidman College of Business
We examine the signaling effect of stock purchases and sales in family controlled firms (FCFs) that result in Schedule 13D filings (beneficial ownership over 5%). These filings contain information on both the type of stock transaction and the purpose of the transaction, which can indicate support for or opposition to the current leadership and strategy of the FCF. This allows for the examination of complex signals that other research has been limited from studying.
