Stock Price Adjustment to Corporate Accounting Disclosure: A Quantitative Study on Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE), Bangladesh.

Protap Kumar Ghosh, Sutap Kumar Ghosh


This study has been designed to detect whether corporate accounting disclosures through annual report influence stock price movement in Dhaka Stock Exchange. To conduct our study, we gathered a series of panel data from 2010 through 2014 of 25 private commercial banks. Least square regression analysis has been done by incorporating fixed effect and random effect models and six models have been developed through Hausman Test. The resulting output revealed that “Earning per share”, “Return on equity” and “Net asset value per share” (book value) positively influenced stock price movement during our study period but “Earning per share” and “Net asset value per share” jointly can explain highest variation in stock price movement in DSE. Although past few studies showed weak form of market efficiency in DSE , this study conveys a positive movement of  Banglidesh stock market from weak form towards strong form of efficiency.
