内容简介:Using granular data on institutional investors‟ bidding prices during the initial publicofferings (IPOs) in China, we document a disproportionately large fraction of biddingprices in integer numbers. IPO firms with a higher degree of uncertainty exhibit agreater percentage of integer bidding prices from institutions. Further, the historicalprevalence of IPO underpricing likely induces investors to have priors of positivereturn immediately after an IPO event and adjust bidding prices up when rounding tothe integer price. Such a preference results in relatively higher bidding prices and theensuing offering prices. Consequently, both short-term and long-term post-IPO returnsbecome lower for firms with a greater fraction of integer bidding prices. We concludethat an “information equilibrium” view plausibly explains our observedprice-clustering phenomenon, and more importantly, price-clustering induces wealthtransfer among participants in the primary market.
