Following that, Dr. Harvey Nguyen delivered a presentation entitled “Lotery Demand and Stock Returns Preceding Earnings Announcements”, which was a study under the Behavioral Economics topic. The objective of the study was to evaluate the relationship between the need to play the lottery and investors' income statements. Data for the study were collected between 1980-2015 with nearly 600,000 observations. There were many questions and opinions exchanged by the delegates about the presentation of Dr. Harvey Nguyen.
After nearly 2 hours of work, the seminar program was a great success. Hopefully, in the future, there would continue to be many cooperation programs in training and science and technology between VNUA and Massey University, New Zealand.
