We find contagion effects are present in US small size portfolios during emerging market crises due to risk and liquidity concerns. Investors display flight from risk during emerging market crises, and as a result, safer larger stocks exhibit positive abnormal returns. We find little evidence of contagion in aggregate excess US market returns, indicating studies that focus on national aggregates may miss important within market dynamics during emerging market crises. The international dynamics that we document have important implications for investors, even when they may have limited global exposure.
We examine the impact of emerging market crises on US portfolio returns to measure the international spillover of financial crises. Recent emerging market crises make the topic of contagion especially pertinent. Carrieri, Errunza, and Hogan (2007) demonstrate that world integration tends to increase through time. Bekiros and Georgoutsos (2008) discuss a dramatic increase in private capital flows into emerging markets in recent years. As developing nations become increasingly integrated in the world market, the role of financial crises may become more important. For example, Broner, Gelos, and Reinhart (2006) argue that contagion results from investors scaling back areas that were overweighted, and Bayoumi, Fazio, Kumar, and MacDonald (2007) find that developed market investors herding into emerging markets may be an important precondition for a crisis. As we provide evidence that emerging market crises influence the US market, understanding the dynamics of these crises may be vital. Specifically, as international mechanisms influence worldwide capital markets, this will affect even a purely domestic investor. Models and explanations for contagion often focus on portfolio rebalancing in response to financial shocks, illustrating how fundamental shocks within one market may spread globally (cf. Kodres and Pritsker (2002)). Existing research tends to focus on measuring the impact of a financial crisis in one country on national aggregates across the globe. However, in addition to predicting the transmission of shocks across the globe, when applied to a single market, many models also predict a response within domestic portfolios following an international shock. Our innovation is to focus on portfolios within the US market following international shocks. At an aggregate US market level of analysis, we find no impact due to emerging market shocks. However, when we disaggregate the US market, we find interesting dynamics across US portfolios related to both risk and liquidity. Our focus on portfolios within the US market allows for a relatively clean test of contagion, relative to many existing studies. Researchers typically define contagion as an increase in the relation across assets during crises (cf. Forbes and Rigobon (2002)). Therefore, studies must disentangle fundamental shocks from pure contagion effects, and by construction, both contagion effects and fundamental valuation shifts tend to co-exist. For example, Yang and Bessler (2008) point out that analyzing contagion within a region, such as Latin America during the Argentine crisis, may be difficult, as all Latin American countries may share similar fundamentals or risk exposures with Argentina, the country of origin. Our study within the US market mitigates this concern. Finding contagion for some portfolios, flight to quality for others, and no effect at the aggregate market level, suggests our results are due to emerging market events, rather than weakened fundamentals across all securities.1 We examine US equity returns conditional on emerging market crises and define contagion as abnormal negative returns after controlling for developed market factors. In a similar fashion, flight to quality refers to abnormally strong performance during international crises, after controlling for systematic sources of risk. Our results support the flight from risk hypothesis. Namely, we find contagion within our riskier US portfolios during emerging market crises, as well as positive return shocks to the safer portfolios. This indicates that investors may optimally rebalance the risk exposure of their entire portfolio in response to a shock within one specific market.2 Our results document important contagion dynamics missed by analyses of aggregate national markets.

We find evidence that, despite having no impact on the aggregate US market, emerging market crises negatively affect small stocks, but have a positive impact on large stocks. The patterns of performance conditional on emerging market crises are consistent across a variety of research designs and suggest that we observe a flight from risk in small stocks (and a concomitant flight to quality in large stocks) during emerging market crises. Positive returns to large stocks during crises suggest that liquidity risk may be less important than risk related portfolio behaviors.
