Investor Relations & Disclosure Practices – Observations on Academic Research

March 27, 2008

We came across this interesting blog post by John Palizza, Rice University instructor and founding partner of Palizza Partners who was prepping for his investor relations class. His post provides a summary of various research findings related to investor relations and disclosure practices. Here’s a highlight: “improvements in the quality and quantity of voluntary disclosures improves a stock’s share price, trading volumes and narrows the bid – ask spread. The result of all this is increased liquidity and decreased volatility.”

There are a number of additional conclusions he draws about IR as it relates to the size of the company as well as the positive effects of having an ongoing, transparent investor relations effort. Very interesting. (apologies for errors in the original post – TB)
