Prior researches have described strategic disclosure of prior-period benchmark in earnings announcement that focuses on the transitory gain or loss, which, in turn, influences investor’s judgments (Schrand & Walther 2000; Krische 2005). Using strategic reference-point theory from psychology and Hogarth & Einhorn’s (1992) belief-adjustment theory, this paper extends such research by investigating how investors behave differently to reminder effect and anchoringadjustment. The experimental results suggest that reminder effects and anchoring of information can influences investor’s judgments in evaluating of company performance.
