Abstract

This study focused on the emotional actions of overconfidence and cognitive dissonance caused by immediate and expected emotions, affecting stock returns. This study analyzed the effect of immediate and expected emotions towards stock returns through the overconfidence and cognitive dissonance. By adhering to quantitative research using SEM-PLS analysis, the data were collected from questionnaires using a purposive sampling method. The findings reveal that (1) Expected emotion affected stock returns with the overconfidence as a mediation variable. However, expected emotion had no direct effect on stock returns itself. (2) Expected emotion had no significant impact on stock returns, directly or indirectly, through the cognitive dissonance. (3) Immediate emotion had a significant effect on stock returns through overconfidence. However, immediate emotion had no significant effect directly on stock returns.
