n this study, we employ Natural Language Processing (NLP), a subdomain of artificial intelligence (AI), to predict the sentiments while analyzing 3729 annual 10-k financial reports of S&P 500 companies over the 2002–2019 time period. Our findings suggest that the firm’s financial performance indicators help reduce negativity in the textual part of 10-ks. In contrast, we do not observe any significant association between the firm’s financial performance indicators and 10-ks positivity. Our findings are robust to alternative econometric specifications and alternative measures of key variables. Our results contribute to the accounting and financial disclosure literature by indicating that corporate financial performance indicators can predict the tone of 10-k filings. [less ▲]

This article investigates the impact of remittances on credit in 30 developing (low and middle income) countries and 27 developed (high-income) countries during the period of 2000-2014. This paper differs from existing literature in two ways. First, we distinguish the impact of remittances on credit in both the short run and the long run. Second, we investigate whether remittances influence credit provided to households and credit provided to firms differently, thanks to a new dataset. Our results indicate that (i) remittances have a positive impact on credit in the long run but no impact in the short run; (ii) remittances have a stronger effect on household credit than on firm credit in developing countries; and, (iii) remittances stimulate credit provision through firm credit in developed countries.

This article investigates how bank competition has evolved in Africa following the recent penetration and expansion of regional cross-border banks over the past decade. We examine changes in competition in the banking industry of seven African countries highly affected by this recent phenomenon. The evolution of competition is evaluated through three different non-structural measures of competition (Lerner index, Panzar–Rosse model, and Boone indicator). With the exception of results from the Lerner index, our findings show an intensification of competition since the mid-2000s. This period corresponds to the rapid expansion of regional cross-border banks in the zone, indicating that this expansion has promoted competition in banking sectors in Africa. [less ▲]
