Hello thebelgian-ga,

I've found  H. Nejat Seyhun's CV on the faculty pages at the
University of Michigan. His publications are listed starting on page
two. Please take a look and identify which one you're looking for.
I've also found his book, Investment Intelligence from Insider
Trading, and would like to know if this would meet your needs.

I look forward to your clarification.

which is the right one. The information includes: Title, Authors,

Hi Czh,
Thanks for you patience. What I was really looking for is the study
you can find with the words "Insider buying" and "George seyhoun" in
google. It's a PDF file starting with "Valuation screen...". I cannot
open it and I connot find it somewhere else.
Thanks Vincent

Hello thebelgian-ga,



These are the only PDF documents I could find with the incorrectly
spelled name "George Seyhoun" instead of the correct "Seyhun." I hope
one of them is what you're looking for. If not, I suggest use use the
resources I've posted that provide an extensive library of Seyhun's

All the best.

Dear  thebelgian-ga,

I'm sorry that you're dissatisfied with my answer. The links in my
clarification seemed to meet your criteria. I would have been very
happy to keep looking if you could give me additional information.
Since you're convinced that there is additional information to be
found I suggest that you ask for a refund so someone else can help you
find it.

All the best.

It's amazing to see many websites cite this study without checking the
name, spelling or giving the title of the alleged paper. A good place
to search for economic papers is

The PDF article you mentioned can be read if you search Google for

"Insider buying"  "George seyhoun" "valuation screen"

and click on the "HTML version." The article you mention seems _not_ 
to be an article by Seyhoun, but mentions his work.
