Defeating Short-Termism with More Data, Not Less

Barry Ritholtz and Josh Brown debate the merits allowing publicly traded companies to report to their investors semi-annually versus quarterly.

Do investors behave better or worse when you restrict information from them?

Is there a such thing as too much transparency?

What happens with investors when their advisors allow them to focus on quarterly performance reports?

Should financial advisors make performance information available 24/7, 365 days a year?

Will analysts on Wall Street become any better at forecasting if they get access to even more information or get updates more frequently from company management?
