Seminar on ‘Stock Return Anomalies from Ending-digit Effects around the World’

Dr Toro Chen, Assistant Professor in the Lee Shau Kee School of Business & Administration at the OUHK, gave a seminar on 10 August 2016 on the ending-digit effects on stock return anomalies. Using data from 68 countries, he showed that excess buying occurs when stock prices start to surpass the zero-ending threshold (i.e. when the ending digit is 1) as it is perceived by traders as the beginning of an upward momentum. This leads to abnormal positive return for all price points one penny above the zero-ending round number. In contrast, there is excess selling when stock prices start to drop below the zero-ending threshold (i.e. when the ending digit is 9) which results in an abnormal negative return for all price points one penny below the zero-ending round number. This ending-digit effect remains robust in various sub-samples according to the characteristics of a country or industry.


Seminar on ‘Managing Coopetition with Employees: A Knowledge-appropriation Perspective’

Dr Eddie Law, Assistant Professor in the Lee Shau Kee School of Business & Administration at the OUHK, gave a seminar on 24 August 2016 on managing cooperation with employees. The seminar included the findings of a study which conceptualizes the management of knowledge appropriation tensions between a firm and its employees as an important manifestation of coopetition management. It addressed the deficiencies of the knowledge management literature through analyzing the nature and dynamics of different knowledge appropriation strategies, and the deficiencies of the coopetition literature through examining the coopetitive relationship between a firm and its employees.
