Dr. Andrei L Nikiforov studies how financial markets respond to the flow of information. Specifically, he looks into the effect of earnings seasons on the prices of stocks and bonds. According to Andrei’s research investors require extra return to hold stocks that are sensitive to the high uncertainty periods caused by the earnings seasons. In addition, he studies how liquidity shocks caused by the flow of information can be transferred across different markets. Dr. Nikiforov’s research is applied to generate abnormal returns in the options markets.
