We capture the firm’s precautionary and market timing motives in a tractable model of dynamic corporate financial management when external financing conditions are stochastic.

As simple as this market timing behavior by the firm appears to be, we show that it has subtle implications for the dynamics of corporate investment, risk management, and stock returns. The key driver of these surprising implications is the finite duration of favorable financing conditions combined with the fixed issuance costs firms incur when they tap equity markets. We develop a unified dynamic q-theoretic framework where firms have both a precautionary-savings motive and a market-timing motive for external financing and payout decisions, induced by stochastic financing conditions. The model predicts (1) cuts in investment and payouts in bad times and equity issues in good times even without immediate financing needs; (2) a positive correlation between equity issuance and stock repurchase waves.

Timing Risk Implications Higher Trading Expenses: Investors who are continually trying to time the market are buying and selling more frequently, which increases their fees Additional Tax Expenses: Each time a stock is bought or sold, a taxable event occurs. If an investor is holding a Market timing e ects can only appear when there is a nitely-lived win- dow of opportunity of getting access to cheaper equity nancing, and such e ects interact in a complex way with the rm’s precautionary cash management and investment policies. This market timing motive can cause investment to be decreasing (and the marginal value of cash to be increasing) in financial slack, and can lead a financially constrained firm to gamble. Quantitatively, we find that firms' optimal responses to the threat of a financial crisis can significantly smooth out the impact management model, in which external nancing conditions are stochastic. Firms value nancial slack and build cash reserves to mitigate nancial constraints. Temporary favorable nancing conditions induce them to rationally time equity issues. We show that market timing responses can result in investment that is decreasing in nancial Moreover, market timing interacts in a complex way with the rm’s precautionary cash. management and investment policies: When cash is tight and dwindling, the rm acceler-. ates its investment, times the equity market, and speculates, but not otherwise.

We model market financing opportunities risk through switching probabilities between two states of nature with respectively low and high external costs of equity financing. The most striking result of our analysis is that market timing introduces convexity convex in nancial slack. As a result, investment can be decreasing in nancial slack, and the rm may gain by engaging in speculation so as to increase its market timing option value. These results contradict the predictions of standard models of investment and risk management for nancially constrained rms. Importantly, market timing can only matter when there is a nitely-lived window of opportunity of getting access to cheaper equity nanc-ing.

The 2008 financial crisis exemplifies significant uncertainties in corporate financing conditions.
