```					THE LONG RUN PERFORMANCE
OF TAIWANESE INITIAL PUBLIC
OFFERING STOCKS

陳柏宇 Po Chen 9731810
Overview
   Motivation: People always wonder if the prices of IPO
stocks are higher than it should be
   Objective: Examine the long run performance of IPO
stocks in Taiwan
   Data: The prices of all IPO stocks in Taiwan from 2004
to 2007
   Method
 For each IPO stock, compute the returns of each day
by comparing the closing price on each day to the
one on IPO day
 Comparison starting from IPO days to 3 year after
 Adjust the return by the index change of the
corresponding market segment
International Empirical Results
   Only 5 out of 23 have positive
long run return
   Average is -11%
Hypotheses
 Positive long run return: the adjusted
average return AAR of the first, second and
third years are positive
 Lower return on longer period: the AAR of
the first year is better than second year,
which is better than the third year
 IPO stocks having higher closing price on
IPO days have lower return: NTD 30 is the
threshold
Method

 Pi,t - Pi,0 I i,t  I i,0 
ARi,t                              100%
 Pi,0             I i,0 
   ARi,t is the adjusted return of stock i after t IPO days;
   Pi,t is the closing price of the stock i after t IPO days;
   Ii,t is the index of the corresponding market segment
of stock i on nstock i's t IPO day.
AAR n ,t  ( ARi,t ) / n
i 1
   AARn,t is the average adjusted return of stock 1,2,..,n
after their t IPO days respectively.
Empirical Result I

   The 1-year, 2-year, and 3-year AARs are positive
   The AAR of 3-year is higher than the first & second year
Statistic Data I

   The AAR of 1, 2, 3 years are higher than the AAR of the first month
   The standard deviations of 1, 2, 3 years are similar
   # of IPO stocks with positive return is similar to the ones with
negative returns
Empirical Result II

   The AAR of IPO stocks with higher closing prices on IPO days is
lower than AAR of all IPO stocks on most of days in 3-year
period
Conclusion
   The possibility of IPO stock in Taiwan having positive return
is about 50%
   The adjusted average return of IPO stocks in Taiwan is
around 30%, as high as 59% after three years.
   The adjusted average performance of IPO stocks may not
be lower over time
   The AAR of IPO stocks having closing price over NTD 30 on
IPO day is lower than the AAR of all IPO stocks most of the
time in three years
