The top figure presents the median of the percentage of the stock that is held by exchange traded funds for CRSP stocks with share price of at least US$ 5 and market capitalization of at least US$ 100 million. The bottom figure presents the number of ETFs in our sample each month. The top figure presents the median of the percentage of the stock that is held by exchange traded funds for CRSP stocks with share price of at least US$ 5 and market capitalization of at least US$ 100 million. The bottom figure presents the number of ETFs in our sample each month. The sample consists of purely domestic equity ETFs. Using a large sample of US equity ETF holdings, we document the link between measures of ETF activity and return comovement at both the fund and the stock levels, after controlling for a host of variables and fixed effects and by exploiting the ‘discontinuity’ between stock indices.
