It is received financial wisdom
that when there is free entry by speculators, it is impossible to generate
net profits on publicly available information. In this paper we study a
version of the standard Kyle (85) model with endogenous information
acquisition and we find that equilibria exist with free entry in which
speculators make positive profits. Moreover, these equilibria are robust.
