A focus of research has been the interplay between risk and financial return in capital markets. In this area, I have addressed such issues as the relation between risk (as the variability of outcomes) and returns. This has led to an understanding of how random movements in stock prices (noise) might be manipulated to improve investment performance. Investors’ required return on financial assets (which equates with a firm’s cost of capital as the hurdle rate for its investment activity) is complicated by many factors (personal taxes and the Australian imputation tax system, as examples), which I clarify over a series of articles. I have also contributed with articles that have been critical of the status allocated to such core paradigms in Finance as the Modigliani and Miller propositions, the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), as well as the Fama and French three-factor model. My most important contributions are encapsulated in my book in 2015: Stock Markets, Investments and Corporate Behavior: A Conceptual Framework of Understanding, (author Michael Dempsey, published by Imperial College Press with World Scientific). My contributions across financial markets have also been published in leading international journals, including: Journal of Banking and Finance (2), Financial Analysts Journal (2), European Financial Management (1), Abacus (3), Journal of Investment Management (2), Australian Journal of Management (2), Journal of Business Finance and Accounting (3), Accounting and Business Research (3), Critical Perspectives on Accounting (3), Applied Economics (1), Accounting and Finance (1), Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions & Money (1), Journal of Asset Management (1) and Australian Tax Forum (1).
