The Effect of Cloud Computing Investment Announcements on Market Performance
Abstract: This paper inspects the effects of the cloud computing investment announcements on market per-formance, using the data from 40 listed companies in China from 2010 to 2013. Our results indicate that firms who release more cloud computing investment announcements have higher market performance, and that announcements about completed projects are more positively received than announcements about planned or in-progress projects. Firms which established the informational relationship with cloud computing have higher market performance, but the effect varies due to market performance measure dimensions. This paper conducted the early research of the effect of cloud computing investment announcements on market performance, which, to some extent, has a certain practical significance.
