This research project aimed to discover what happens to stocks when they’re being admitted to the NASDAQ Regulation SHO threshold list. Does appearance on the list scare off potential buyers, driving prices lower and ushering a new bearish trend? Or, does it attract buyers, causing stocks to exhibit a mean-reverting behavior? Using the daily NASDAQ Regulation SHO (Reg SHO) threshold lists and daily stock price data from Yahoo! Finance, I set off to find that out.
