Isida Mansaku, Saimir Mansaku, Ioannis Tampakoudis


As (Considering that) listing on any exchange provides a great opportunity to the corporates or entrepreneurs for raising capital in order to fund new projects or to undertake expansions or diversifications, we have conducted an empirical research on the largest stock exchanges worldwide, focusing more on New York Stock Exchange, London Stock Exchange and NASDAQ respectively. The main purpose of this study is to provide evidence on the performance of the three exchanges with the emphasis on some key indicators for the period spanning from 2010 to 2014. The analysis conducted on these indicators reflects the progress of the exchanges during this period and provides a great statistical significance. Moreover, the recent trends are tracked down to demonstrate how this valuable source can be channeled into decision making. The findings outline that the stock exchanges are reliable barometers to measure the economic growth of a country and could be beneficial for a range of market participants, such as companies or current and potential investors when selecting a stock exchange, for issuers, and of course for scholars to get a better idea about the important happenings on stock exchanges and to understand the impact that one exchange movement has on other.
