Friction models are used to examine the market reaction to the simultaneous disclosure of earnings and dividends in a thin-trading environment. Friction modelling, a procedure using maximum likelihood estimation, can be used to replace both the market model and restricted least-squares regression in event studies where there are two quantifiable variables and a number of possible interaction effects associated with the news that constitutes the study's event. The results indicate that the dividend signal can be separated from the earnings signal.
