Abstract:

We investigate how analysts learn about the quality of their research from the stock-price reaction to their reports. We find strong evidence that analysts who issue influential recommendation changes in the current quarter are more likely to issue recommendation changes next quarter. These future recommendation changes are also more likely to be influential. In cross-sectional tests, we find that these feedback effects are driven by an information channel where capacity constrained analysts quickly translate the information in the successful report onto other firms; and a skill channel where analysts update their priors about their skill from the market’s endorsement of their research.
