Loughran and Ritter (2000) use this argument for their claim that the Fama-French model has low power to detect an abnormal return in an offering setting as the factors themselves are “contaminated” with new listings. New issues thus serve as part of the benchmark for their own return, effectively diminishing the spread. However, this concern has been shown empirically to be of no influence of the results. Eckbo et al. (2000) and Brav et al. (2000) change the factor construction such that no issuing firm return is included.

This characteristic is essential for the research question of this work. I use an average e-loading as expected value for the information risk of the IPO firm at the date of the issuance. After the listing, investors will gradually update their prior belief with the firm’s true riskiness. Naturally, the examination of this process requires a metric that is able to reconcile this change. In addition, the minimum requirement of only 100 trading days can easily be met by most IPO firms. Third, the usage of the time-specific AQfactor assures that e-loadings can be calculated in event time rather than calendar time.

Data on class action securities litigation over the period January 1, 1990, through April 24, 2003, are from Woodruff-Sawyer Co. and from the Securities Class Action Clearinghouse. The data requirements reduce the final lawsuit sample to 793 observations. The bankruptcy sample consists of 618 firms that went bankrupt during 1970 to 2003 as indicated by the delisting codes obtained from CRSP. Requiring sufficient returns data to estimate e-loadings for a given year yields to 371 observations. The benchmark for the e-loadings comparison is constructed by randomly selecting 100 non-event samples with the same number of firms as the corresponding event sample.
