The studied results demonstrated that there is more obvious in herd investment behavior of listed companies in China. In the companies’governance mechanism, the shareholder control, managerial can effectively control non-flock investment behavior and the inhibition of independent directors is not obvious. The conclusion drawn in this paper not only supports the assumption of that herd behavior is sourced from managers’ self-interest motivation, but also help us to recognizethe corporate governance mechanism must be effective in the perfect market environment
