    • Utility Stock Splits:  Signaling Motive Versus Liquidity Motive

    • Utility industry; Information asymmetry; Stock splits
    • Despite the rich literature on theories of stock splits, studies have omitted public utility firms from their analysis and only analyzed split by industrial firms when examining managerial motives for splitting their stock. I examine the...

    • A Combined Motif Discovery Method

    • Transcription Factor Binding Site, Gibbs Sampling, Mutual Information, Information Content, Simulated Tempering, Scoring Function
    • A central problem in the bioinformatics is to find the binding sites for regulatory motifs. This is a challenging problem that leads us to a platform to apply a variety of data mining methods. In the efforts described here, a combined motif...
