The study surveyed 74 student subjects from a major public university in the southern United States in a capital market experiment. This study investigates the link between profitability and the individual emotions present at the time of the experiment among managers and investors. This study is motivated by the shareholder and manager mechanism simulating a real market environment, where the individual self-reported emotions on a survey are analyzed by a least square regression analysis from the perspective of investors and managers.
