Niniejszy artykuł prezentuje badanie poświęcone anomalii niskiej ceny na polskim rynku akcji. Wykorzystując sortowanie, metody analizy przekrojowej oraz testy relacji monotonicznych, badanie obejmuje notowania ponad 850 spółek z polskiego rynku akcji w latach 2000-2014. W przeciwieństwie do obserwacji na rynkach rozwiniętych, polskie spółki o wysokiej cenie nominalnej notują wyższe stopy zwrotu aniżeli spółki o niższej cenie nominalnej. Co więcej, dodatkowe sortowania przy pomocy wskaźników wyceny, kapitalizacji oraz momentum mogą zostać wykorzystane do poprawy efektywności strategii opartych na cenie nominalnej. Odwrotny charakter efektu niskiej ceny na krajowym rynku kapitałowym może być potencjalnie wyjaśniony przy pomocy innej anomalii: efektu akcji loteryjnych. Na koniec, przy wykorzystaniu alternatywnej metodologii, niniejsza praca weryfikuje hipotezę Bakera i in. [2009], zgodnie z którą menedżerowie przedsiębiorstw wykorzystują splity do zarządzania wartością przedsiębiorstwa.

The study investigates the low-price effect on the Polish stock market. Using sorting, cross-sectional tests and checks of the monotonic relation, we examine the performance of portfolios formed on prices of over 850 companies listed on the Polish stock market in the years 2000-2014. Contrary to global evidence, expensive stocks significantly outperform cheap stocks there. Furthermore, additional sorts on value, size and momentum may be used to improve price-based strategies and the anomaly is strongest among growth companies. We hypothesize that the reverse character of the low-price anomaly may be potentially explained by an impact of other phenomena, like the underperformance of lottery-stocks. Moreover, employing an alternative methodology, we provide convincing out-of-sample evidence in support of the hypothesis of Baker et al. [2009], that corporate managers cater to investors by splitting their shares in response to time-varying catering incentives.
