This paper examines the information effect of investment alert issues by the Korea Exchange (KRX) and the trading patterns of investors classified by individual, institutional, and foreign investors. The results are summarized as follows. First, the cumulative abnormal return (CAR) is -13.66% over two days after investment alert issues, indicating that it is a highly negative event in the market. Second, prior to investment alert issue both institutional and foreign investors are net sellers whereas individual investors bear the brunt of loss as a net buyer of the stock. Third, the net purchases of individual investors continue even after investment alert issue. This phenomenon is more evident for the to-be-delisted firms, engendering substantial loss to individual investors. Fourth, the firms with higher debt ratio, more discretionary accruals and lower profitability are more likely to face delisting after investment alert issue. In addition, the net purchase ratio of individual investors is a predictor of delisting after investment alert issue. In conclusion, investment alert issue by the KRX does not seem to contribute to resolve the information asymmetry between investors and protect the retail individual investors.
