Growth vs. margins
destabilizing consequences of giving the stock market what it wants
Philippe Aghion, Jeremy C. Stein.

Published 2004 by National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, MA .
Written in English.

About the Book

"We develop a multi-tasking model in which a firm can devote its efforts either to increasing sales growth, or to improving per-unit profit margins by, e.g., cutting costs. If the firm%u2019s manager is concerned with the current stock price, she will tend to favor the growth strategy at those times when the stock market is paying more attention to performance on the growth dimension. Conversely, it can be rational for the stock market to weight observed growth measures more heavily when it is known that the firm is following a growth strategy. This two-way feedback between firms%u2019 business strategies and the market%u2019s pricing rule can lead to purely intrinsic fluctuations in sales and output, creating excess volatility in these real variables even in the absence of any external source of shocks"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.
