Additionally, trading volume should increase when the price of an IPO with a negative initial return exceeds the offer price for the first time. Kaustia (2004) finds support for the aggregate impact from the disposition effect on the subsample of negative initial return IPOs. Kaustia (2004) states that trading volume is clearly suppressed below the offer price for negative initial return IPOs, and turnover increases significantly at the time the stock price exceeds the offer price for the first time and continues to get higher while the stock is trading above the offer price. In this paper I inspect IPO trading volume and have some different findings that trading volume is significantly suppressed below the offer price for IPOs in 2003-2007 which is defined as the before-crisis period in Section 2 of this paper, and the effect does not continue to be significant during the following weeks since the offer.
