This paper studies a newsvendor problem with random supply capacity, where the retailer (newsvendor) is loss-averse and the shortage cost is considered. When the retailer orders, the quantity actually received is the minimum between the order quantity and supply capacity, and his objective is to choose an order quantity to maximize the expected utility. It is shown that under different conditions, the loss-averse retailer may order larger than, equal to or less than the risk-neutral one, which is different from the existing result in the case without considering shortage cost. Further, if the shortage cost is less than a critical value, then the loss-averse retailer's optimal order quantity is always less than the risk-neutral retailer's. The numerical experiments are conducted to demonstrate our theoretical results.
