Abstract

This paper explains and extends my 2002 paper. It presents a return factor of illiquid-minus-liquid stocks, called IML, which provides a time series of the illiquidity premium. The risk-adjusted predicted return on IML is lower in the period that follows my 2002 paper but it is still significant. IML also has the predicted response to market illiquidity shocks.
