"Retail Short Selling and Stock Prices" Authors: Eric K. Kelley - University of Arizona and Paul C. Tetlock - Columbia University

Fri., Sep 26th, 2014 10:30 until 11:50 AM

ABSTRACT

This study tests asset pricing theories that feature short selling using a large database of retail
trading. We find that retail short selling negatively predicts firms’ monthly stock returns and
news tone, even controlling for overall short selling. Predictability from retail shorting is
strongest in stocks with low analyst and media coverage, high idiosyncratic volatility, and high
turnover; it does not depend on short sales constraints. Retail buying positively predicts returns
in similar types of stocks. These results are consistent with the theory that retail short selling
informs market prices, but are inconsistent with alternative theories in which retail short selling
is a proxy for sentiment or attention.
