【内容摘要】

Using the SEC’s 2016 Tick Size Pilot Program (TSPP) as a natural experiment, we investigate the effects of investors’ information acquisition on equity versus debt financing. We find a significant increase in firms’ preference for equity over debt issuance after the TSPP’s implementation. This increase is concentrated among firms that experience decreases in algorithmic trading and increases in information acquisition activities. We also find that the effect of the TSPP is more pronounced for firms with high information asymmetry prior to the program. Taken together, our results suggest that investors’ information acquisition has a causal effect on firms’ financing choices.
