Professor Niessner’s areas of research are corporate finance and behavioral finance. In her research on financial reporting she examines whether managers strategically disclose negative news for their own benefit. Exploiting the SEC requirement that managers must disclose certain material corporate event within five business days, she found they disclose negative events disproportionately on Fridays, before national holidays, and after the market closes.
