MARIA MIGHOU

Dr. Maria Michou is a lecturer in Finance in the School of Accounting and Finance at the University of Manchester.

Her teaching interests are mainly in accounting and finance, where she is teaching Foundations of Finance, Empirical Finance, Advanced Corporate Finance, International Finance and Financial Decision Making to undergraduate students. She is also supervising Master dissertations in the Finance area.

Her research interests span a number of areas in finance with particular emphasis on tests of market efficiency and equity return predictability. Recent publications include a study of the performance of value investment strategies in the UK stock market. The first part of this study undertakes a comprehensive characterisation of value strategies in the UK following Lakonishok, Shleifer and Vishny (1994) using data for the period January 1975 to December 1998. It provides a detailed evaluation of their profitability by using different measures of value, namely book-to-market value of equity, earnings yield, cash flow yield and past sales growth. The second part, it goes on to explore whether the profitability of value strategies can be explained using the three factor model of Fama and French (1993, 1996). The third part is a comprehensive investigation of the relationship between the returns to value investment strategies and various macroeconomic state variables that in a multi-factor asset pricing model could reasonably be taken as proxies for risk.
