This paper analyzes the relationship between public disclosure, private information and stock liquidity using a sample of 41 listed firms in the Tunis Stock Exchange in 2007.

Second, Tunisian investors do not rely on the information disclosed in both annual reports and web sites to make investment decisions, consequently it has no effects on stock liquidity, in contrast with private information.
