Pinches, Singleton, and Jahakhani (1978) (PSJ) used this technique to determine whether fixed coverages were a major determinant of electric utility bond ratings. Bhandari, Soldofsky, and Boe (1979) (BSB) investigate whether or not a multivariate discriminant model that incorporates the recent levels, past levels, and the instability of financial ratios can explain and predict the quality rating changes of electric utility bonds. PSJ (1978) found that fixed coverage is the only (and not the dominant) financial variable that apparently influences the bond ratings assigned to electric utility firms. Other important variables are the climate of regulation, total assets, return on total assets, growth rate or net earnings, and construction expenses/total assets.2 The major finding of BSB’s study is that the MDA method can be more successful in predicting bond rating changes than it had been predicting the bond ratings themselves. These results have shed some light for the utility regulation agency on the determinants of bond ratings and the change of bond ratings for electric utility industries.**4.7 Ohlson’s and Shumway’s methods for Estimating**Default Probability X1 = Natural log of (Total Assets/ GNP Implicit Price Deflator Index). The index assumes a base value of 100 for 1968; X2 = (Total Liabilities/Total Assets); X3 = (Current Assets – Current Liabilities)/Total Assets; X4 = Current Assets/ Current Liabilities; X5 = One if total liabilities exceeds total assets, zero otherwise; X6 = Net income/total assets; X7 = Funds provided by operations/total liabilities; X8 = One if net income was negative for the last two years, zero otherwise; and X9 = (Net income in year t – Net income in t–1) / (Absolute net income in year t + Absolute net income in year t–1).**4.7 Ohlson’s and Shumway’s methods for Estimating**Default Probability (4.8) Where , P = the probability of bankruptcy.**4.7 Ohlson’s and Shumway’s methods for Estimating**Default Probability (4.9) Where , P = the probability of bankruptcy; X1 = Net Income/Total Assets; X2 = (Total Liabilities/Total Assets); X3 = The logarithm of (each firm’s market capitalization at the end of year prior to the observation year / total market capitalization of NYSE and AMEX market); X4 = Past excess return as the return of the firm in year t-1 minus the value-weighted CRSP NYSE/AMEX index return in year t - 1; and X5 = idiosyncratic standard deviation of each firm’s stock returns. It is defined as the standard deviation of the residual of a regression which regresses each stock’s monthly returns in year t – 1 on the value-weighted NYSE/AMEX index return for the same year.**4.8 Summary**In this chapter, we have discussed applications of two multivariate statistical methods in discriminant analysis and factor analysis. Examples of using two-group discriminant functions to perform credit analysis, predict corporate bankruptcy, and determine problem banks and distressed P-L insurers were discussed in detail. Basic concepts of factor analysis were presented, showing their application in determining useful financial ratios. In addition, the combination of factor analysis and discriminant analysis to analyze industrial bond ratings was discussed. Finally, Ohlson’s and Shumway’s methods for estimating default probability were discussed. In sum, this chapter shows that multivariate statistical methods can be used to do practical financial analysis for both managers and researchers.**Appendix 4A.
