Abstract

Earning management has become the practice in business. Yet, not all of the companies dothis earning management. The study aims to investigate earnings management behaviormeasured by real and accruals transactions i.e. abnormal cash flow of operation, abnormalproduction cost, abnormal discretionary, short-term discretionary accruals, and long-termdiscretionary accruals. The study applies a perspective of prospect theory to predict earningsmanagement behavior of management. In prospect theory, it is predicted that managers tendto manage earnings to avoid negative earnings. Positive earnings around zero is an indicationof earnings managed to avoid negative earnings. It shows that most of Indonesian publiccompanies tend to manage earnings based on real transactions than accruals transactions.All proxies of real earnings management support hypotheses that positive earnings aroundzero are managed through the real transactions. On contrary, only long-term discretionaryaccruals which support hypothesis revealing that positive earnings around zero is managedthrough accruals accounts. This result indicates that the Indonesian public companies engagein earnings management in accordance with the predictions of prospect theory, especiallythose based on real transactions.

Abstract

This study aimed to find out, empirically, the effect of myopic loss aversion and accounting information on the behavior of investors. The method used is pure experiment by using a 2×2 factorial design between subjects. The results show that myopic loss aversion and accounting information positively affects investor behavior. Another result reveals that there is a difference in treatment (frequent and infrequent) that was equally given accounting information. There is a difference of treatment (frequent and infrequent) that was not given accounting information, but the results return obtained by investors with the treatment of frequent is higher than investors with the treatment of infrequent, it indicates that investors that were treated frequently to be more willing to take a risk, and investors proved not to experience MLA. It was not found the difference in treatment (frequent and infrequent) with accounting information with those that were not given accounting information. It can be caused by a lack of understanding of investors (in this case by the students) in interpreting and analyzing accounting information as well as private signals that still dominate the investors.
