Abstract
In this dissertation, I examine three issues in corporate finance that relates to institutional investors, banks, and firm managers. The first one examines the relationship between a firm’s stock price fragility and its bank loan cost. The second one examines a firm’s change in tax behavior after violating a loan covenant. In the last piece, I study whether the gender of a company’s CEO affects hedge fund activists’ targeting behavior and if so, what happens to the firm, the activists, the CEO.
