Abstract: This report analyses the effect of the company disclosed information on the short selling volume in Hong Kong stock market. Using the data at 28 April 2006 on the short sale volume in individual stocks, we find that the financial ratios namely quick ratio, price-to-book ratio, time interest ratios, inventory turnover and earnings per share have an inversely proportion to the number of short selling in the market. Meanwhile, the ratios including ROA and price-to-sales ratio have a positive relation to the number of short selling. Short sellers may also refer to factors like changing in directorship and company news in making their investment decision.
