  Insight - Kellogg School Research  

Kellogg School of Management faculty offer their latest research in an online digest emphasizing key findings that you can put to work today.

"Suspiciously Short: CEOs with stock options may purposely miss earnings targets"
Based on the Research of Mary Lea McAnally, Anup Srivastava and Connie D Weaver. For firms that set aside a portion of earnings to bolster future statements - a practice known as managing earnings downward - the likelihood of missing targets increased with stock-option grants.

"Super Premium Ice Cream: Merger Effects on Product Variety"
Based on the Research of Michael J. Mazzeo, Michaela Draganska And Katja Seim. The rules governing mergers can have unexpected effects on the variety of products offered by the merged firms. The unique nature of the ice cream industry offers an opportunity to explore the larger issues involved in corporate mergers and product mix. 

"Beware the Siren's Song: Maintain self-control by avoiding temptation"
Based on the research of Loran Nordgren, Joop van der Pligt and Frenk van Harreveld. When people are put to the test about their ability to resist cutting corners or to engage in unethical behavior, the results can be surprising - and disturbing.
