Abstract: Dissanaike (1997) found a long-term "winner-loser" effect in the UK, within a sample of large (FT500) companies. However, he did not investigate as to whether there was a size effect within his sample, nor did he check to see if it subsumed his "winner-loser" effect. We find evidence of a size effect within the FT500 sample, and the size and "winner-loser" effects are not unrelated. But, there is no evidence to suggest that the size effect subsumes the "winner-loser" effect. Copyright Blackwell Publishers Ltd 2002.
