Abstract

This study analyzes the adverse selection cost component embedded in the spreads of Brazilian stocks. We show that it is higher than in the U.S. market and presents an intraday U-shape pattern (i.e., it is higher at the beginning and at the end of the day). In addition, we investigate the relationships of the adverse selection cost with firm’s characteristics. We find that stocks listed in the highest corporate governance levels do not have the lowest costs. On the other hand, the liquidity of shares, the trade size and the market value of the firm are directly correlated with this cost
