Article
This paper analyses the determinants of tourist length of stay in sharing accommodation. Methodologically, the paper proposes a new approach to account for the observed bimodality of length of stay. More specifically, the determinants of length of stay are analyzed by modeling both the conditional mean and conditional modal frequencies, which repre...

This paper analyses whether peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodation substitutes traditional accommodation, taking into account dynamic and spatial spillover effects. We also analyse the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis on the demand and substitution effect. To do this, we use a spatial dynamic panel data demand model for occupancy rates related to p...
Article
In this paper, we use several indicators of trade informativeness to search for informed traders on the final trading days of Banco Popular, the first and only bank resolution case to date in the euro area. In particular, we use the model proposed by Preve and Tse (2013) to estimate the adjusted daily probability of informed trading and the probabi...

Faced with the need to adjust public pension systems to meet changing demographic, economic and social conditions, most developed countries have created government reserve funds to ensure macroeconomic sustainability. This paper aims to study the importance that this reserve fund plays in the sustainability of the Spanish public pension system. Usi...
Article
Full-text available
The AIM of this study is to examine and evaluate differences in expenditure and length of stay between tourists who use low-cost carriers and those who travel with full service providers. We consider the statistical dependence between these variables and propose a bivariate distribution that describes tourist expenditure (continuous variable) and l...
Article
Full-text available
This paper analyses the effects of AirBnb on the size of local tourism markets using AirBnb occupancy rates and hotel overnight stays in order to explore the causal relationship in several Spanish cities. A dynamic panel data model is applied at the city level (2014–2017). Our findings show a positive relationship between the increase in the number...
Article
This paper analyses the unbiasedness hypothesis between spot and forward volatility, using both the actual and the continuous path of realised volatility, and focusing on long-memory properties. For this purpose, we use daily realised volatility with jumps for the USD/EUR exchange rate negotiated in the FX market and employ fractional integration a...
Article
In this article, we analyse whether tourism promotes economic growth using a general dynamic panel data model that incorporates individual and interactive fixed effects and allows for contemporaneous correlation in model innovations. The empirical study is based on quarterly series of GDP and tourist arrivals for 14 European countries covering the...
Article
Full-text available
Many regions and countries seek to develop their tourism industry as a strategy for economic growth. A growing body of research supports the hypothesis of tourism-led growth. This paper contributes to the existing literature in two ways. First, it proposes a new mechanism for sustained tourism-led growth, emphasising the crucial importance of the m...
Article
This paper analyses the relationship between performance assessment methods used by banks to evaluate their branches and the corresponding time‐varying cost efficiency. To do this, we employ a panel data framework and consider bank branches' latent heterogeneity, which might arise from unobserved non‐systematic management problems. Our analysis is...
Article
In this paper, we use a specification of the standardized duration to test unobserved heterogeneity in a nonlinear version based on a self-exciting threshold autoregressive conditional duration model. We illustrate the relevance of this procedure for identifying the presence of heterogeneous agents in the final days of trading of Banco Popular, the...
Article
In this article, tourists’ choice of the number of stays (length of stay, a discrete variable) and daily expenditure (a continuous variable) is modelled relaxing the linearity assumption and employing a structural form. A bivariate copula distribution, specified in terms of the marginal distributions of daily tourist expenditure and length of stay,...
Article
This paper analyses risk-integration and the degree of dependence between the Values-at-Risk (VaRs) estimates for the two major pharmaceutical stock markets in the world: USA and China. To do this, we study the dependence and fractional cointegration properties among risks. Using daily returns for an eleven-year period, we estimated the VaRs obtain...
Article
Traditionally, the relationship between tourism and economic growth has been studied using methods based on stationary or nonstationary models. In this paper, we explore the validity of the tourism-led growth hypothesis, applying fractional cointegration techniques and comparing the results with those obtained in previous studies. To do this, we st...
Article
Full-text available
Although the Poisson distribution is appropriate for modelling equi-dispersed distributions, it reflects bimodality less well. In this paper, we propose a distribution which is more suitable for the latter purpose. It can be fitted to both positively and negatively skewed data and appears to represent overdispersion phenomena correctly in count dat...
Article
Full-text available
The main aim of this paper is to obtain a direct measure of the relation between the future and implied volatilities, in order to determine the appropriateness of using linear modelling to establish the implied–realised volatility relation. To achieve this aim, the dependence structure for implied and realised volatilities is modelled using bivaria...
Article
This article explores the spending patterns of tourists by market segments of expenditure distribution. We focus on the case of the Canary Islands, that is, a region that is one of the main destinations in the European tourism market, and distinguish between expenditure at origin and expenditure at destination. To do this, we use unconditional quan...
Article
Full-text available
This paper analyses the relationship between air pollution and tourism demand in Beijing. The study method is based on a gravity model, in which air quality variables are incorporated into the model of tourism demand. The results obtained show that air pollution has a negative influence on tourism flows and that this effect is more pronounced for i...
Article
This article proposes a model of foreign tourist expenditure, based on expenditure in the country of origin (i.e. reservation of accommodation and transport) and on goods and services at the destination. The study focuses on two measures reflecting the two types of expenditure: the tourist budget share and the difference in growth rates between exp...
Article
Empirically, the length of stay by tourists at their destination usually presents bimodality, overdispersion and non-zero observations, and classical distributions do not seem to fit this type of data very appropriately. In this paper, we introduce two distributions which accommodate bimodality. One is a flexible discrete distribution which can be...
Article
Tourism receipts have important policy implications for destination countries in terms of government revenues and the management of tourism-related policies. This article uses time series models to analyse the risk exposure reflected in the growth rates of tourism revenues. To do so, we apply risk management measures based on value-at-risk (VaR) an...
Article
This paper describes a two-stage procedure used to evaluate determinants of operational efficiency and profit dimensions, as an indication of the performance of branch managers in a large Spanish commercial bank, before and after the bailout of the Spanish banking system in 2012. This procedure is based on both the non-parametric and robust non-par...
Article
The main objective of this paper is to study the impact of different exchange rate regimes on international trade and to analyze their performance during crises. To this end, a gravity equation for bilateral trade is estimated for a sample of 191 countries over the period 1970–2016 by adding a set of regressors built from a de factoclassification o...
Article
The aim of this article is to obtain a statistical distribution that describes the aggregate expenditure of tourists related to their length of stay at a given location. This distribution enables us to estimate two parameters simultaneously; one controls the length of stay and the other, the expense incurred. We propose two distribution models, for...
Article
The main purpose of this paper is to present an asymmetric logit probability model to estimate and predict the daily probabilities of delay in aircraft arrivals. The proposed model takes into account statistical regularity, noting that more arrivals are on time than delayed, thus reflecting an asymmetric pattern of behaviour. The data analysed were...
Article
Following the recent work of Gómez-Déniz and Pérez-Rodríguez (2014), this paper extends the results obtained there to the normal-exponential distribution with dependence. Accordingly, the main aim of the present paper is to enhance stochastic production frontier and stochastic cost frontier modelling by proposing a bivariate distribution for depend...
Article
The main purpose of this paper is to model time-varying asymmetry information costs. To do this, first, we use two classical reduced-form microstructure models defined in a Bayesian hierarchical framework. In this scenario, we consider adverse selection as a random unobserved state variable and we use the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) estimator....
Article
In this paper, we assume that the duration of a process has two different intrinsic components or phases which are independent. The first is the time it takes for a trade to be initiated in the market (for example, the time during which agents obtain knowledge about the market in which they are operating and accumulate information, which is coheren...
Article
Full-text available
p>This paper extends the conditional duration model proposed by De Luca and Zuccolotto (2003), proposing an infinite mixture of distributions based on non–exponentials which accounts for the unobserved market heterogeneity of traders. The model we propose takes into account the fact that reaction times follow a gamma distribution and that the inten...
Article
The empirical relationship between trade and tourism has been explored during recent years finding that international tourism promotes international trade between countries. However, the impact of tourism on trade flows has been neglected within standard international trade models such as the gravity equation. The main aim of this paper is to provi...
Article
This paper investigates the impact of the Economic and Monetary Union on international tourism flows across a set of 37 developed countries. To do this, an augmented gravity model is estimated using a sample of 31 European countries plus six non-European OECD countries over the period 1995–2012. Results suggest a substantial impact of the euro on i...
Article
This paper proposes a bivariate continuous model based on normal–half normal distributions for testing the independence of idiosyncratic and inefficiency terms in the stochastic frontier model in a maximum likelihood framework. This model allows us to construct a closed-form of the marginal distribution of the composite error term dependent on a pa...

Objective: This study empirically analyzes the effects of public information about the pharmaceutical R&D process on the market valuation of the sponsoring firm. We examined the market's response to scientific news and regulatory decisions about an antiobesity drug, rimonabant, and the effects on the sponsoring company (Sanofi-Aventis) and its incu...
Article
Do extreme price changes of pharmaceutical stocks reflect unexpected scientific information produced during the drug R&D process, especially the approval of new drugs, but also pre- and clinical trial results, recalls and withdrawals? Do stock prices initially overreact to such information? We modelled market-adjusted daily changes in stock prices...
