International Event Study (Compustat Global)
Using Compustat Global data, study the effect of events on international stocks by either uploading your own “events” file or obtaining events from Capital IQ’s Key Development database. Capital IQ’s Key Development database allows you to select from hundreds of international corporate events (e.g. M&A, bankruptcy) included in the KeyDev database to conduct event studies beyond the boundaries of North American stock markets.
Uploading your own events requires subscriptions to Compustat Global; selecting events from Capital IQ requires subscriptions to Compustat Global and Capital IQ’s Key Development database.
