At UNO since 1996 Dr. Maroney's research interests are in Investments, International Finance, and Financial Market Anomalies. His current empirical research focuses on the information content of accounting ratios in predicting equity market returns in seven industrialized countries. In another empirical investigation he is reexamining the anomolous behavior of equity market returns surrounding the announcement of stock-splits and dividends. On the theoretical side, he is working on the question of how the aging populations of the industrialized world affect equity market risk premia. As part of this research, he has developed a numerical algorithm to solve a class of economic models that had no known solution. Dr. Maroney teaches undergraduate courses in corporate finance, and macroeconomics; and teaches an advanced graduate course in investments. Department of Economics and Finance
