5th AP2-CFF Conference December 10, 2018."Can Financial Research be used in the Finance Industry".

Recently, the robustness and interpretation of some of these results has been questioned and it is unclear whether they will hold up in the future. The reasons being e.g. so called p-hacking and issues related to the interpretation of statistical significance.
