This study examines the tendency of many firm shares to move opposite the direction predicted by signaling theory upon the announcement of a major dividend policy change. This research attempts to reconcile such market behavior in the context of an A-firm/B-firm dichotomy created by conflicting signals sent by the firm. Investor uncertainty instead may stem from a lack of information reaching the marketplace.
