Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine the effects of stock prices following the announcement of audited financial reports of Slovenian and Croatian public interest entities. Our research is to study the importance of variables and their significance regarding the audit in explaining the reactions of stock price movements (fluctuations). In this study we have applied discriminant analysis and logit models. Discriminant analysis and logit were performed with type of opinion as the dependent variable and eleven financial ratios as independent variables. Test results show that the audit quality, the auditor's opinion have an impact on the evolution of stock prices.
