exactly three months ago.  A quick review suggests that there is little point in treating preliminary reports too seriously due to significant inaccuracies which often result in subsequent revisions.  While investors and politicians always fixate on the advance number, few outside the economics profession seem to pay much attention to subsequent revisions. Q3 2009:  3.5% Estimate vs. 2.2% Reality The advance GDP estimate for Q3 was 3.5% while the current estimate is 2.2%.  This is obviously a very significant change.  The BEA does not pretend that advance estimates are accurate.  In each quarterly ...

Empirical Finance Research Blog: The Asset Growth Effect in Stock ...
We document a strong negative relationship between the growth of total firm assets and subsequent firm stock returns using a broad sample of U.S. stocks. Over the past 40 years, low asset growth stocks have maintained a return premium of 20% per year over high asset growth stocks. The asset growth return premium begins in January following the measurement year and persists for up to five years.

World Bank Research E-Newsletter, June 2010
National poverty lines vary greatly across the world, from less than $1 per person per day to more than $40 (at 2005 purchasing power parity), according to a new working paper by Martin Ravallion. What accounts for these huge differences, and can they be understood within a common global definition of poverty?

in partnership with Wes Gray and Andy Kern of Empirical Finance, LLC. This month's newsletter includes the results of a stock screen that should not be missed. Abstract: This paper examines whether a simple accounting-based fundamental analysis strategy, when applied to a broad portfolio of high book-to-market firms, can shift the distribution of returns earned by an investor. I show that the mean return earned by a high book-to-market investor can be increased by at least 7 percent annually through the selection of financially strong high BM firms while the entire distribution of realized returns is shifted to the right. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In his latest annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, released on February 28th, chairman Warren Buffett observes a "freefall in business activity" by 4Q08, "accelerating at a pace that I have never before witnessed." While he calls decisive government action "essential," he believes it will have unwelcome consequences.
