The first and third 留学生毕业论文versions (traditional models) are similar to Ohlson (1995) andFeltham-Ohlson(1995) models, respectively and the difference is that the other informationvariable has been ignored due to non access to analysts’ forecast. The second and fourthversions (sign-oriented models) attempt to improve traditional models by the segregation ofabnormal earnings in terms of their sign. The research results show that sign-orientedmodels have better performance in the prediction of abnormal earnings compared totraditional model. Using forecasted abnormal earnings in all of the valuation functionsindicate that none of the studied models can appropriately forecast firm’s value. Also, theresults suggest the superiority of Feltham–Ohlson based to the Ohlson based models bothin respect of abnormal earnings forecast and regarding studied firms’ valuation.
