21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shares in Ocwen Financial Corporation ("Ocwen" or the "Company") (NYSE: OCN) have plunged approximately 20%-its largest intraday drop since October 2008-after New York's Department of Financial Services accused the company of improperly option grants to periods of lower share prices (Yermack, 1997; Aboody and Kasznik, 2000; Chauvin and Shenoy, 2001; Lie, 2005; Heron and Lie, 2007; and Narayanan and Seyhun, 2006), or decreasing earnings to suppress share price when options are granted (Baker, Collins, and Reitenga, 2003; Cheng and Warfield, 2005; Bergstresser and Philippon, 2006; Cornett, Marcus, and Tehranian, 2008; Mc Anally, Srivastava, and Weaver, 2008).
