UCREL CRS: Analyst's use of vivid language

Date: 30 January 2014 Time: 02.00-03.00 pm

Venue: Management School LT5

Presenter: Catherine Salzedo , LUMS, Lancaster University

This paper examines how financial analysts alter their language in predictable ways related to their forecasting accuracy. Results show that analysts use more vivid language after an earnings surprise where their forecasts have been less accurate, consistent with attempting to influence users' interpretation of the event and mitigating reputational damage. This paper extends work on the linguistic properties and textual content of analysts' reports. We develop and test a framework for understanding analysts' linguistic style and the cross-sectional variation therein. We further contribute to the development of context-specific dictionaries by producing a dictionary of vivid language used by analysts.
