Investment, Marginal q, and Discrete Stochastic Price Changes

Abstract [en]

The effects of discrete output price shocks on a firm's optimal rate of investment are examined in a stochastic continuous-time model. Price changes of random size occur at random times. Contrary to previous studies with symmetric adjustment costs, which have found a positive effect of increased uncertainty on investment, I find that with discrete price changes the effect is ambiguous and depends on a fractional moment of the distribution of the relative size of the price change.
