Competitive price-cutting momentum and pricing reactions
- 112 Downloads
In light of the increasing interest in understanding the behavioral side of competitive decision making, this paper examines how the “price-cutting momentum” (PCM) created by other competiors' reactions to an initiator's price cut influences pricing decisions. We explore the PCM construct and present the results of a study examining the effect of PCM on the price recommendations of retail grocery pricing executives. We find that PCM influences pricing reactions inboth low-search and high-search markets. Competing explanations of the results are considered.
