Resumo

We used the method employed in Kothari, Lewellen and Warner (2006) to show the relationship between aggregate earnings and market returns in Brazil in the period from 1995 to 2017. Considering the findings found by Kothari, Lewellen and Warnet (2006), our results indicate that the theory of Bernard and Thomas (1990) is more consistent with the US market than with the Brazilian market, signaling that the aggregate post-earnings announcement drift tends to be larger in markets with higher earnings persistence, like Brazil. Our findings also indicate that the relationship between aggregate returns and earnings in Brazil tends to be positive for the current period and the next two quarters, corroborating the Sadka and Sadka (2009) study. Considering that the predictability of earnings in the US market is higher than that in Brazil, our results also support the argument by He and Hu (2014) that the relationship between aggregate earnings and returns is linked to each country’s level of disclosure. However, new evidences reveal the influence of high interest rates on financial market results, suggesting that expectations of increased interest rates tend to reduce aggregate current returns in Brazil due to the possible migration of capital to lower risk, given the attractiveness of their returns in an environment of high inflation.
