Ricardo De la O is a Ph. D. candidate in Economics at Stanford University. His research interests include macroeconomics, asset pricing and firm dynamics. His current research studies the effect of corporate payout rigidities in firm investment dynamics, and their general equilibrium impact in the economy. In another project, he uses individual firm forecasts to study the contribution of subjective cash flow and return expectations on aggregate asset price volatility.
