六、报告摘要

Analysts are specialists in forecasting industry and market sector trends. Yet there is little evidence on their role as information producers in shaping major corporate strategies. Focusing on conglomerate firms in which CEOs are less informed about segment investment opportunities,thisstudy examines whether analysts’ informationproduction improves conglomerates internal capital market (ICM) efficiency and corresponding market valuation. Using brokerage mergers as exogenous shocks in the analyst industry, we provide causal evidence that a significant decline in ICM efficiency resulted from the reduction of analyst coverage. The effect is more pronounced when conglomerate CEOs face higher internal information barriers, have less firm-specific knowledge, and when lost analysts are industry specialists. Additional analysis shows that the effect of analyst coverage reduction on ICM efficiency is not driven by weakened external monitoring or increased cost of capital and is robust to a wide array of identification strategies. We further demonstrate a post-event decrease in conglomerate valuation, primarily driven by firms with relatively larger decline in ICM efficiency. Overall, our study provides novel evidence that analysts help conglomerate CEOsgain segment (industry-related) information, which cannot be otherwise obtained internally due to agency conflicts.
