Using a 57-year global foreign listing sample, we identify cross-listing waves at the host market, home market, and industry levels. Waves in host markets are often due to cross-listing waves in proximate home markets. Consistent with gravity model implications and economic synergy arguments of cross-listing decisions, cross-listing waves in a given host country coincide with the outperformance of host and proximate home country’s economies and financial markets. The valuation gains from listings associated with cross-listing waves are transitory, supporting the market timing component in these decisions. Our results provide novel evidence of non-monotonic market development across countries and over time.
