A Reexamination of the Tendering Profit Anomaly
Lakonishok and Vermaelen (J Financ 45:455–477, 1990) and Peyer and Vermaelen (Rev Financ Stud 22:1693–1745, 2009) document profits of around 9% from participating in stock repurchase tender offers during the 1962–1986 and 1987–2001 periods, respectively. The persistence of such large profits over a short trading horizon constitutes a striking anomaly in financial markets. Given the rise of event-driven hedge funds, we reexamine this strategy in recent years (2000–2015) and find that abnormal profits from tendering have disappeared. Examining a sample of closed-end fund repurchase tender offers during the same period, we find abnormal tendering profits of around 0.5%. However, these profits are no longer significant after adjustments for transaction costs.
