Access from EThOS:
Hughes (1986), and the 'no news, bad news' voluntary disclosure models posit that firms which voluntarily disclose a forecast have better news than firms that do not. On the contrary, Trueman (1986), Feltham and Xie (1992) and Arya and Mittendorf (2005) suggest that firms may disclose a forecast regardless of the nature of the news that they have. The empirical evidence on the voluntary disclosure motivations and implications is far from conclusive.
