Our study contributes to the literature by demonstrating that presentation format and announcement prominence both have significant impact on investors’ judgments and decisions, and that their effects are interactive. Our results also indicate that future research can possibly gain better insight if it considers the accounting attributes of the special items in addition to their economic attributes.
We appreciate helpful comments from 2014 American Accounting Association (AAA) Annual Meeting and 2014 AAA ABO Research Conference.
