Abstract

FERREIRA, TALIEH SHAIKHZADEH VAHDAT  and  MARTINS, ORLEANS SILVA. RELATIONSHIP ANALYSIS BETWEEN DISCLOSURE ON THE INTERNET, RISK AND RETURN IN LATIN AMERICAN COMPANIES. RAM, Rev. Adm. Mackenzie [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.2, pp.154-183. ISSN 1678-6971.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1678-69712016/administracao.v18n2p154-183.

Purpose:

This study sought to examine the extent to which the internet it is utilized as a tool for the disclosure of corporate information, facilitating the transparency of companies in relation to their stakeholders.

Originality/gap/relevance/implications:

This study differs from previous as it fills a gap in the literature to relate a disclosure measure on the internet with the risk and return of companies in Latin America, since this literature is only possible to identify studies that analyze these variables independently or with respect to other factors.

Key methodological aspects:

The sample included 758 companies listed on four major exchanges in Latin America (Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Mexico), and its disclosure level was quantified and its relationship with risk and return were verified by Tobit regressions.

Summary of key results:

The results show that it is possible to observe that the issue of ADRs, the size and liquidity affect the relationship between disclosure, risk and return. Also, the disclosure has advanced in the region over the years, especially in Brazil. However, no significant differences were identified between the countries, to the point of impact relations with the risk and return of companies.

Key considerations/conclusions:

The main contributions are the expansion of evidence on these variables, relating them to each other in emerging markets.

Keywords : Disclosure; Index; Information; Capital market; Latin America.
