Some research papers imply that the investment market doesn’t possess efficiency when fund managers have the ability to get some information to gain the extra profit.
In order to analyze if the fund managers have the information that are superior to market, we have a discussion in this research paper as follow. When fund managers don’t take the traditional diversified investment method and focus on centralizing their investment in one specific industry. Can we say that they may have the strength in controlling this industry’s information? We use the stock mutual funds of Taiwan during 2000 to 2004 as our sample and calculate the level of their concentration. The method we take is four factors equation which is used by Carhart (1997) and we find the returns without the risk. And then we try to discuss that if the performance of these aggressive mutual funds is higher than the other traditional conservative mutual funds. And uses the holding-based performance measures of DGTW(1997) to examine the overall return of a fund into a characteristic selectivity and characteristic timing.
Besides, we also consider the influences of seasonal cycle mentioned in some research papers. We use this concept to analyze that if there is a relationship between the centralization investment behavior and the seasonal cycle. The other point is if the window dressing behaviors of the fund managers change the level of centralization and affect the result of our research.
