Abstract

This paper reviews the development, theoritical basis, empirical studies and crucial issues of value relevance literature over last two decades. This review is crucial because there is a considerable debate in recently accounting literature that the value relevance of financial statements numbers to investors has declined or lost a significant portion over time. However, numerous empirical studies investigated the claim reported inconclusive empirical results. The review finds that there are two main problems with respect to those mixed results. First, it is related to the misspecification of using the theoretical basis between valuation theory plus contextual accounting arguments and market efficiency theory. The other problem is related to the misspecification of applying the measurement methodology in assessing the value relevance of accounting numbers to stock markets. The review also finds that the declining of value relevance of accounting numbers over time is triggered by the ignorance of intangible assets, dramatically canges of business environment, and raise of competing information sources in most empirical studies. For the future research, this study suggests to the researchers to consider accurately the identified factors, besides the firm specific factors such as systematic risk, firm size, corporate governance and firm quality.
