Abstract: In this paper we consider a utility maximization problem with defaultable stocks and looping contagion risk.We assume that the default intensity of one company depends on the stock prices of itself and other companies,and the default of the company induces immediate drops in the stock prices of the surviving companies. Weprove that the value function is the unique viscosity solution of the HJB equation. We also perform somenumerical tests to compare and analyse the statistical distributions of the terminal wealth of log utility andpower utility based on two strategies, one using the full information of intensity process and the other a proxyconstant intensity process.
