The early work in this field was carried out by authors such as Altman (1968) and Beaver (1968) using financial ratios to try and predict bankruptcy. Later authors such as Lookabill (1976) took a more formal statistical approach. More recent authors such as Fama and French (2000) and Llewellen (2003) concluded that earnings were mean-reverting, but that they were non-linear.
