Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the contemporaneous relationship between changes in corporate reputations and stock prices.

Design/methodology/approach

The Harris Interactive Reputation QuotientTM is used as a measure of corporate reputation. Stock return and risk measures are evaluated for each Reputation QuotientTM survey period for the years 1999‐2007.

Findings

The results provide evidence that, in the aggregate, firm reputations are procyclical. Additionally, firms with improved reputations enjoy lower volatility in their stock prices than firms with diminished reputations.

Research limitations/implications

Due to the Harris Poll Online methodology, it is not clear that the price changes occur concurrently with the change in reputation.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to the finance literature by examining the effect of a change in corporate reputation on stock price.
