1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

This talk will  share the investigation on whether attitudes towards gambling help explain the occurrence of stock price crashes in China. The following questions will be discussed with the audiences.

  • Do firms with stronger gambling preference experience greater stock price crash risk?
  • Can the impact of local gambling attitudes on stock price crash risk be mitigated by higher quality internal monitoring and more stringent external monitoring?
  • What are the two channels through which gambling preferences intensify stock price crash risk?
