Messis, P, Alexandridis, Antonis, Zapranis, Achilleas (2014) Testing and comparing conditional CAPM with a new approach in the cross-sectional framework. In: International work-conference on Time Series 2014, June 25th-27th, 2014, Granada, Spain. (KAR id:41264)


This study examines the conditional relationship between beta and return for stocks traded on S&P 500 for the period from July 2001 to June 2011. The portfolios formed based on the Book value per share and betas using monthly data. A novel approach for capturing time variation in betas whose pattern is treated as a function of market returns is developed and presented. The estimated coefficients of a nonlinear regression constitute the basis of creating a two factor model. Our results indicate that the proposed specification outperforms alternative models in explaining the cross-section of returns.
