Mads Vestergaard Jensen will defend his thesis Financial Frictions - Implications for Early Option Exercise and Realized Volatility on Friday November 18, 2016 at 2 pm.

The first chapter (with Lasse Heje Pedersen) shows that the classic rule that one should never exercise a call option early breaks down when frictions are severe enough. The second chapter documents that underlying stocks underperform after early exercise, consistent with private information leading to early exercise. The final chapter (with Christian Skov Jensen) finds that, consistent with an increase in differences of opinion, a positive demand shift for shorting a stock predicts higher volatility for the affected stock.
