dc.description.abstract In this paper, we investigate the effects of installment receipt IPOs on the short term and long term prices of the underlying securities. Our findings are that: there exist both short term and long term trends in prices implying that investors view the issue as a bargain and therefore buy the issue for both short term and long term gains; that the dominant factor affecting investor uncertainty is the level of confidence attached to the underwriter; and that for installment receipt IPOs, investors have the time leverage to monitor the activities of the firm before making a commitment to purchase the security. en_CA
