  • Cristina Ganja

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to investigate the existence of a liquidity premium on the Polish stock market, using the liquidity-adjusted CAPM. In order to measure the influence of the liquidity of stocks returns, there was constructed a liquidity factor using the newest high-low spread liquidity measure, developed by Corwin and Schultz (2012). The results have showed that there is a significant liquidity premium positively influencing the excess returns of stocks from the Poland market, and the premium is growing from the most liquid portfolio to the less liquid one.
