The findings reported in Table II indicate the presence of information asymmetry effects in the market's reaction to new equity issue announcements.
Perhaps more interesting, the findings in Tables II and III show that there is significant cross-sectional variability in the market's reaction to the announcement of a new equity issue, and that information asymmetry effects are important to its understanding.
For example, in calibrating real business cycle models, it would be important to be able to generate Friedman's ceiling and asymmetry effects if in fact the data support these.
