  • The prominence of behavioral biases in analysts earnings forecast accuracy   Order a copy of this article
    by Semra Bank, Duygu Arslantürk Çöllü 
    Abstract: Some studies in the relevant literature imply that financial analysts earnings forecasts are biased. Based on that findings, this study aims to make a prioritisation list among three groups of factors and among sub-factors in each factor group that have an effect on analysts earnings forecast accuracy. In line with this aim, this study uses a combined DEMATELANP hybrid model and reveals that optimism and herding behaviour have greater prominence than other factors in a prioritisation list of the factors affecting financial analysts earnings forecast accuracy. In turn, this finding confirms the irrationality of financial analysts in their earnings forecasts.
    Keywords: financial analysts’ earnings forecasts; financial analysts’ earnings forecast accuracy; forecast bias; DEMATEL; ANP.
