“The Effect of Stock Liquidity on Debt-Equity Choices”
We examine the effect of stock liquidity on a firm’s choice between debt and equity when funding its investment activities.
Using Russell index reconstitutions and two tick-size policy changes as exogenous shocks to liquidity, we show that stock liquidity increases a firm’spropensity to raise debt capital.
We also find support for a major economic mechanism underlying the positive impact of stock liquidity on debt financing: information produced by increased liquidity leads to a reduction of residual uncertainty, which lowers creditors’ information costs and thus the firm’s cost of debt capital.
These findings provide new insights into the effect of stock liquidity on external financing choice.
