This study intends to examine the choices of capital structure from Taiwanese electronic firms.
Empirical results here provide the evidence that Taiwanese electronic firms follow the different
financing behavior depending on the level of profitability. This study adopts two separated processes:
First, we adopt Panel Unit Root Tests and find that under the different profitability the firms have
different financing behaviors. Second, we adopt the model of Watson and Wilson (2002) to determine
the order of the capital. We find out that the firms with a high level of profitability support the pecking
order theory but the firms with a low profitability turn to support the static trade-off theory. However,
the firms with the medium profitability cannot have any significant results.
