Abstract:The results indicate that the market distinguishes between the following dividend changes: (1) dividend increases that convey favorable information about the firm's future profitability, (2) dividend increases that convey unfavorable information about the firm's future profitability, (3) dividend decreases that convey favorable information about the firm's future profitability, (4) dividend decreases that convey unfavorable information about the firm's future profitability. The results also indicate that market's classification for these dividend changes depends mainly on the size of the firm and the price-to-book ratio at the time of the dividend change announcement.
