【本期主题】Shadow Trading
U.S. regulations prohibit a firm’s employees from exploiting their private information about the firm for personal gain. We examine whether information leakage from employees at a firm (“source firm”) facilitates profitable trading in a business partner or competitor (“linked firm”), an activity we characterize as “shadow trading.” We find that linked firms experience a 6.4%-19.2% increase in symptoms of informed trading activity prior to a source firm’s release of relevant private information. We also find that shadow trading is lower in source firms that explicitly prohibit their employees from exploiting private information about linked firms. Each typical shadow trading window represents trading profits of up to approximately $678,000. Two distinct exogenous shocks to legal prohibitions against conventional insider trading and employee mobility provide additional evidence on the sources of information leakage. Our study is relevant for legislators and regulators seeking to promote confidence in the integrity of capital markets.
