Влияние тональности писем CEO на финансовые показатели компании
The paper is devoted to the analysis of CEO letters as an instrument for influencing the expectations of shareholders and potential investors. The aim of the research is to analyze empirically the influence of semantic characteristics of CEO letters on financial indicators of the company. The authors suggested that CEO letter’s tonality, its length and readability have a great impact on the company’s financial indicators, their prediction and mid-year stock value. To check the hypotheses stated, a sample group of 102 Russian companies was analyzed with the use of “bag of words” method (specialized dictionaries were applied). For this purpose, neural network models were also developed. The results obtained confirmed the influence of CEO letter’s semantic characteristics on the stock value of company.
