摘要:

State of the Union (SOTU) address is one of the most important political events in the U.S. at which the President announces policy proposals and legislative priorities for the year. Unlike traditional macroeconomic and monetary policy announcements studied in the literature, SOTU addresses go back to the 1930s, which allows to extend and refine the announcement evidence in a longer sample and an alternative context of broad government policy. We find that stock market returns on SOTU days are an order of magnitude higher than on other days; show strong pre- and some evidence for post-announcement drift; increase with more ex-ante uncertainty and in bad economic conditions. While SOTU days are preceded by high investors' attention, the trading volume significantly drops at the announcement day, and recovers the day after. The overall evidence supports the risk premium/uncertainty resolution channel, coupled with information arrival prior to the announcement.
