Let's ignore the mechanics of the NYSE Euronext transaction that is currently ongoing and whether or not it gets approved. Assume it does, which currently appears likely — Where does leave Euronext-listed EADS? All of a sudden its stock will be open to investors in many other markets, chiefly North America, and if NYSE does the rumored deal with the Tokyo Stock Exchange, then add Japanese investors to the mix.

Where I am going with this is — in such a situation, EADS stock is suddenly far more liquid and subject to a more global shareholder base. What direction would this send EADS/Airbus in?

Uh, what? Pardon me if I've misunderstood something, but are you saying that foreigners haven't been allowed to invest in EADS before?

No, he's saying the market for EADS shares will be far more liquid.

OK, but I could invest on the Nasdaq right now simply by going to my Finnish bank's website. I'd just like to hear more about how something like that would help.

I must admit I also interpret the question like Killjoy did.

and

Quoting N328KF (Thread starter):
EADS stock is suddenly subject to a more global shareholder base.

Just for the record: the number of free floating shares of EADS will NOT increase when EADS will be listed on different continents and EADS is already open to non-european investors today (see the discussions on Qatari and Dubai investment funds willing to buy a share of EADS or alternatively possibly only of EADS' subsidiary Airbus), so a more globalised stock exchange will not really shake up the share holders structure dramatically.

What could be happening over time is that Joe Average in the USA will start to see EADS for what is already is: just another globalized aviation and defence consortium which offers great opportunities for long term investment to all of its share holders (hence the reason several large oil funds want to invest in it)...

There is still to much flag waving when it comes to planes really:
remember a 787 with RR engines is less American than an A380 with EA engines for instance.
