FINANCE: Political Partisanship and the Stock Market: Evidence From COVID-19 with Professor William Mullins

Should political beliefs matter for stock market investing? Normally no. But during the COVID-19 crisis, a new pattern emerged. Join us for an MBA master class led by Rady assistant professor of finance William Mullins about how investors' political identities — rather than information about firms — are informing their beliefs about the stock market. Professor Mullins is an award-winning faculty member and former advisor to the Minister of Finance of Chile, and his research has been published in the Journal of Financial Economics and the Review of Asset Pricing Studies. In this class, he will explore a recent study that showed partisan Republicans were substantially more optimistic about the stock market than other investors during 2020's COVID-19 outbreak, but became more pessimistic about Chinese stocks. The partisan disagreement also explains 20% of the huge rise in stock market trading during the first half of 2020.
