Stock Price and Return Characteristics by Quarter after Downgrade in CAMEL Rating: Subsequent Recovery

The data reported on each of the quarter-to-rating change lines (0 to 8) are calculated as simple averages for all trading days in each quarter. If data required for any quarterly calculation are missing, then they are omitted from the calculation. Excess returns are calculated as the difference between the cumulative quarterly return of each stock and the cumulative quarterly return of the various indexes. T-statistics testing the hypothesis that the mean equals zero are shown below many of the quarterly average return and change in return statistics. A single, double, or triple "*" indicates significance at the 10%, 5%, and 1% levels, respectively.
