  • Authors: Din, Badariah H.; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Saari, M. D. (2016)

  • asymmetry_mean-reverting_behavior_asean_stock_market_returns_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2011)

  • The present paper characterizes the mean-reverting behavior of six ASEAN markets – Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam – using an autoregressive exponential GARCH-in mean model and daily data from August 2000 to May 2010. The results indicate fast speed of mean-reversion in the returns of these markets but with quite distinct patterns of return dynamics. The evidence seems strong to suggest asymmetric mean reversion and overreaction during market downturns in the Indonesian market. The Vietnamese market exhibits most persistent return autocorrelation with some evidence pointing to higher persistence during market downturns. However, there is no evide...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Karbhari, Yusuf (2009)

  • This paper examines the perception of bankers on contribution of audit committees towards external auditor independence in public listed companies. All Malaysian public listed companies are required to establish an audit committee as a measure to improve on the internal control mechanism that can help improve the corporate governance practices of firms. Postal questionnaires and interview surveys were used to solicit the perception and views of loan officers. The majority of the respondents believe that auditor independence is preserved with the presence of an actively functioning audit committee. This implies favourably on the corporate governance

  • audit_market_competition_causes_consequences_zulkarnain.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain (2009)

  • The aim of this paper is to examine the impact of competition in audit market and client importance to perceived auditor independence from the perspective of Malaysian auditors, loan officers and senior managers of public listed companies. It is found that auditor independence would be threatened if auditors were to receive significant fees from a single client. The dependence on a single client would cause auditor to face a 'self-threat' risk, where they were economically and financially reliant on a single customer. The interview survey disclosed that regulatory authorities should closely monitor the profession by persistently scrutinising each audit firm's revenue and expenses.

  • Authors: Muhammad Sori, Zulkarnain; Karbhari, Yusuf; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Abdul Wahab, Sazali (2013)

  • Evidence of audit failures documented worldwide have led to major criticism of the auditing professions' independence and exposed its implication on shareholders and stakeholders' interests. External auditors are expected not only be independent but more importantly must be seen to be independent when examining and attesting clients' financial statements. Auditors are expected to decide on reporting strategies without any influence from their clients' management.
