Introducing WRDS Research Analytics Tools / The Liquidity and Information Cost of JOBS Act

主讲人: Jun Wu



In recent years, WRDS has been dedicating in developing free research analytics tools that can help researchers reduce programming barriers and data processing time. Featuring event study, financial ratios, intraday indicators, SEC analytics suite and many others, this seminar would show you how to access these analytics tools to save your research time and effort. This seminar also provides a demonstration about how to use WRDS for junior faculty and doctoral students, an introduction to free WRDS classroom tools, and a brief list of the new datasets coming on WRDS soon.
"The Liquidity and Information Cost of JOBS Act" uses liquidity measures and daily PIN from Intraday-indicators Dataset (one of the WRDS Research Analytics Tools) to study the liquidity and information cost of JOBS Act. JOBS Act privileges small businesses to go IPO with reduced financial and accounting information disclosure. From April 2012 to December 2014, JOBS Act has helped hundreds of small business to go public. Although JOBS Act reduces the required paperwork and information disclosure, we find that firms going public via JOBS Act suffer significant high liquidity cost post-IPO and are more attractive to informed investors.
