The average slopes for ln(ME) are close to the values in the univariate size regressions, and almost 4 standard errors from 0, but the average slopes for β are negative and less than 1 standard error from 0. , and book‐to‐market equity) used to explain average returns. They postulate that the earning prospects of firms are associated with a risk factor in returns. BE Note that Fama MacBeth regressions provide standard errors corrected only for cross-sectional correlation. Using logs also leads to a simple interpretation of the relation between the roles of leverage and book‐to‐market equity in average returns. ME Each month the cross‐section of returns on stocks is regressed on variables hypothesized to explain expected returns. P in the FM regressions is based on positive values; we use a dummy variable for The U‐shaped relation between average return and , E As in Tables I to III, we find that the resulting independent variation in β just about washes out the positive simple relation between average return and β observed when portfolios are formed on size alone. 1 / Finally, Roll (1983) and Keim (1983) show that the size effect is stronger in January. / Thus it is the difference between market and book leverage that helps explain average returns. / BE BE / portfolios in Table IV are formed in the same general way (one‐dimensional yearly sorts) as the size and β portfolios in Table II. E The subperiod variation in the average slopes from the FM regressions of returns on β alone seems moot, however, given the evidence in Table AIV that adding size always kills any positive tradeoff of average return for β in the subperiods. Materials & Methods 2.1. BE is close to its value BE Our results on the absence of a relation between β and average stock returns for 1963–1990 are so contrary to the tests of the Sharpe‐Lintner‐Black model by Black, Jensen, and Scholes (1972), Fama and MacBeth (1973), and (more recently) Chan and Chen (1988), that further tests are appropriate. ME Therefore correct for the violation of the assumption of no serial correlation. If anything, this book‐to‐market effect is more powerful than the size effect. The FM regressions of returns on the leverage variables (Table III) pose a bit of a puzzle. Do Investors Value Higher Financial Reporting Quality, and Can Expanded Audit Reports Unlock This Value?. + P ) ) The All row shows statistics for 8 equal‐weighted portfolios of the stocks in each 0, Panel A: Average Monthly Returns (in Percent), BE is the book value of common equity plus balance‐sheet deferred taxes, A is total book assets, and E is earnings (income before extraordinary items, plus income‐statement deferred taxes, minus preferred dividends).

The average of the monthly correlations between the cross‐sections of ln(ME) and ln The correlation between the half‐period (1941–1965 and 1966–1990) βs of the size‐β portfolios is 0.91, which we take to be good evidence that the full‐period β estimates for these portfolios are informative about true βs. To ensure that the accounting variables are known before the returns they are used to explain, we match the accounting data for all fiscal yearends in calendar year / − The 1st‐ and 2nd‐order autocorrelations of the monthly market returns for July 1963 to December 1990 are 0.06 and −0.05, both about 1 standard error from 0. portfolio to 0.93% for the firms in portfolio 1B that have low but positive It is also possible, however, that 1.23 Table III shows that the average book‐to‐market slopes in the FM regressions are indeed close in absolute value to the slopes for the two leverage variables. BE We have examined the monthly slopes from the FM regressions in Table VI for evidence of a January seasonal in the relation between book‐to‐market equity and average return. The average residuals are the time‐series averages of the monthly equal‐weighted portfolio residuals, in percent. E is not extreme, and the average slopes in the bivariate regressions in Table III show that In(ME) and In ) The t-statistics adjusted for serial correlation using Newey-West (1987) are reported in paren-theses. Evaluating Business Performance Using Data Envelopment Analysis and Grey Relational Analysis.

In short, our tests do not support the most basic prediction of the SLB model, that average stock returns are positively related to market βs. (which typically means that stock prices have fallen) are both signals of poor earning prospects. What Matters to Individual Investors? In contrast, the average slopes for In(ME) and In( Journal of Contemporary Accounting & Economics. The central prediction of the model is that the market portfolio of invested wealth is mean‐variance efficient in the sense of Markowitz (1959). It is possible that the risk captured by We use returns for July to June to match the returns in later tests that use the accounting data. stocks are better captured by their size, which Table IV says is on average small. BE 0.25 ) Evidence from public opinions in China. For example, the post‐ranking βs for the 10 portfolios in the smallest size decile range from 1.05 to 1.79. offsets a positive slope for 1971–1980 (0.82, ( While the Fama and MacBeth (1973) and Driscoll and Kraay (1998) approaches deliver ro-bustness to spatial correlation and serial correlation in the panel, each approach has important limitations in practice. ME We take this to be evidence that the pre‐ranking β sort captures the ordering of true post‐ranking βs. If stock prices are irrational, however, the likely persistence of the results is more suspect. P Conditional extreme risk, black swan hedging, and asset prices. / We also find that the combination of size and book‐to‐market equity absorbs the apparent roles of leverage and Downside beta and the cross section of equity returns: A decade later. The fit measure is the within-panel adjustedR2. ( / The average residuals for regressions (1) and (2) (not shown) are quite similar to those for regressions (4) and (5) (shown). In short, our tests suggest that the relative‐distress effect, captured by Which one is the best fourth factor in China? The correlation between size and β is −0.98 for portfolios formed on size alone. BE 1 The β‐sorted portfolios in Tables I and II also provide strong evidence against the β‐measurement‐error story. ME P / / This spread of βs across the 10 size deciles is smaller than the spread of post‐ranking βs produced by the β sort of any size decile. The appendix shows that the simple relation between β and average return is also weak in the 50‐year 1941–1990 period. In our tests, the intercept is weighted toward small stocks (ME is in millions of dollars so ln Our approach is to estimate βs for portfolios and then assign a portfolio's β to each stock in the portfolio.

The relation between ME E P / In a similar vein, Chan and Chen (1991) argue that the relation between size and average return is a relative‐prospects effect. For example, suppose we replace book‐to‐market equity Corporate risk-taking in developed countries: The influence of economic policy uncertainty and macroeconomic conditions. But Table AIV also shows that drawing a distinction between the results for 1941–1965 and 1966–1990 is misleading. / . The residuals from the monthly regressions for year t are grouped into 12 portfolios on the basis of size (ME) or pre‐ranking β (estimated with 24 to 60 months of data, as available) at the end of year P These 25 years are a major part of the samples in the early studies of the SLB model of Black, Jensen, and Scholes (1972) and Fama and MacBeth (1973).

The relation between average return and = This argument only makes sense, however, for firms with positive earnings. P Credit risk – Return puzzle: Evidence from India. E The message from the average FM slopes for 1963–1990 (Table III) is that size on average has a negative premium in the cross‐section of stock returns, book‐to‐market equity has a positive premium, and the average premium for market β is essentially 0. ln / Profitability of momentum strategies in Latin America. Another hypothesis is that, as predicted by the SLB model, there is a positive relation between β and average return, but the relation is obscured by noise in the β estimates. ), and it is negative for 1977–1990 (−0.44% per month, Oil price shocks, investor sentiment, and asset pricing anomalies in the oil and gas industry. 1.27 The average slopes for In In short, any evidence of a positive average premium for β in the subperiods seems to be a size effect in disguise. E , the ratio of the book value of a stock to the market's assessment of its value, should be a direct indicator of the relative prospects of firms. BE ) alone is 0.50%, with a t‐statistic of 5.71. Allowing for variation in β that is unrelated to size breaks the logjam, but at the expense of β. . When we sort on just size or 5‐year pre‐ranking βs, we form 12 portfolios. / BE This spread is twice as large as the difference of 0.74% between the average monthly returns on the smallest and largest size portfolios in Table II. / About 30% Moreover, when the tests allow for variation in β that is unrelated to size, the relation between market β and average return is flat, even when β is the only explanatory variable. ( / The full text of this article hosted at iucr.org is unavailable due to technical difficulties. In the individual‐stock regressions, these values of the explanatory variables are matched with CRSP returns for each of the 12 months of year t. The portfolio regressions match the equal‐weighted portfolio returns with the equal‐weighted averages of β and ln(ME) for the surviving stocks in each month of year t. Slope is the average of the (600) monthly FM regression slopes and SE is the standard error of the average slope. Who Manages the Firm Matters: The Incremental Effect of Individual Managers on Accounting Quality. BE Similarly, looking down the columns of the average return matrix shows that there is a negative relation between average return and size: on average, the spread of returns across the size portfolios in a portfolio. × BE One overreaction measure used by DeBondt and Thaler is a stock's most recent 3‐year return. BE BE Even for the 1941–1965 period, however, the relation between β and average return disappears when we control for size. regressions kills the Topics in Empirical Corporate Finance and Accounting. The FM regressions that explain returns with leverage variables provide interesting insight into the relation between book‐to‐market equity and average return. . ME in the regressions of returns on ln(ME) alone. / in average stock returns. The average slopes provide standard FM tests for determining which explanatory variables on average have non‐zero expected premiums during the July 1963 to December 1990 period. Black, Jensen, and Scholes (1972) and Fama and MacBeth (1973) find that, as predicted by the SLB model, there is a positive simple relation between average stock returns and β during the pre‐1969 period. Two easily measured variables, size (ME) and book‐to‐market equity Simulation of Stock Prediction System using Artificial Neural Networks. Thus, forming portfolios on size and β (Table AIII) produces a better description of the simple relation between average return and β than forming portfolios on size alone (Table AI). t Unfortunately, the flatter market lines in Table AIII have a cost, the emergence of a residual size effect. / Our use of December market equity in the Risk and Return of Equity and the Capital Asset Pricing Model. t-Statistic Based Correlation and Heterogeneity Robust Inference Rustam IBRAGIMOV Economics Department, ... of how to apply this approach to time series, panel, clustered and spatially correlated data. ME The average FM slope for β is only slightly positive for 1963–1976 (0.10% per month, The proper inference seems to be that there is a relation between size and average return, but controlling for size, there is no relation between β and average return. = ( ME In other words, it increases the risk premium associated with size. / Tables I to III say that there is a strong relation between the average returns on stocks and size, but there is no reliable relation between average returns and β.

BE Since we match accounting data for all fiscal yearends in calendar year − The most prominent is the size effect of Banz (1981). to 0.07 ln(ME). in Tables II and IV. We compute equal‐weighted returns on the portfolios for the 12 months of year t using all surviving stocks. firms tend to be persistently poor earners relative to low‐ Request Permissions. (a) Forming portfolios on size and pre‐ranking βs produces a wide range of post‐ranking βs in every size decile. Although the post‐ranking βs in Table I increase strongly in each size decile, average returns are flat or show a slight tendency to decline. BE Section3reports the results of the analysis and compares different methodologies. ) In any size decile, the average values of ln(ME) are similar across the β‐sorted portfolios. Whether Fama/MacBeth or traditional panel data regressions (e.g. E Learn more. The Sharpe‐Lintner‐Black model has long shaped the way academics and practitioners think about average return and risk. t The theoretical basis of the tests is the "two-parameter" portfolio model and models of market equilibrium derived from the two-parameter portfolio model. The correspondence between the ordering of the pre‐ranking and post‐ranking βs for the β‐sorted portfolios in Tables I and II is evidence that the post‐ranking βs are informative about the ordering of the true βs. Using ME at fiscal yearends is also problematic; then part of the cross‐sectional variation of a ratio for a given year is due to market‐wide variation in the ratio during the year. The regressions of returns on β alone show that using the βs of the portfolios formed on size and β, rather than size alone, causes the average slope on β to fall from about 1.4% per month (Table AI) to about 0.23% (about 1 standard error from 0). There is, however, evidence in Table AI that all is not well with the βs of the size portfolios. The portfolios are formed at the end of June each year and their equal‐weighted returns are calculated for the next 12 months. Investor Sentiment and Governance Mechanisms. But like the regressions in Table AIII that explain average returns with β alone, the bivariate regressions say that there is no reliable relation between β and average returns when the tests use βs that are not close substitutes for size. I had to do some readings to see how researchers solve this issue. ( (4.72% per month, 4.57 standard errors from 0) shows that average returns increase with E P It is possible that, by chance, size and book‐to‐market equity happen to describe the cross‐section of average returns in our sample, but they were and are unrelated to expected returns. E Die Entwicklung der angelsächsischen Unternehmensbewertung – kapitalmarktorientierter Ansatz. Within the rows (size deciles) of the average return matrix in Table AII, the high‐β portfolios have average returns that are close to or less than the low‐β portfolios. − 1 As in Bhandari (1988), higher market leverage is associated with higher average returns; the average slopes for In = Thus, allowing for variation in β that is unrelated to size flattens the relation between average return and β, to the point where it is indistinguishable from no relation at all. / The 6‐month (minimum) gap between fiscal yearend and the return tests is conservative. Does anyone know if there is a package that would run Fama-MacBeth regressions in R and calculate the standard errors? Conversely, large stocks are more likely to be firms with stronger prospects, higher stock prices, lower book‐to‐market equity, and lower average stock returns. BE = In the individual‐stock regressions, these values of the explanatory variables are matched with CRSP returns for each of the 12 months in year t. The portfolio regressions match the equal‐weighted portfolio returns for the size‐β portfolios (Table AII) with the equal‐weighted averages of β and ln(ME) for the surviving stocks in each month of year t. Slope is the time‐series average of the monthly regression slopes from 1941–1990 (600 months); SE is the time‐series standard error of the average slope. − © 2010 American Accounting Association In fact, if stock prices are rational, BE P has a familiar U‐shape (e.g., Jaffe, Keim, and Westerfield (1989) for U.S. data, and Chan, Hamao, and Lakonishok (1991) for Japan). The average return matrix in Table V gives a simple picture of the two‐dimensional variation in average returns that results when the 10 size deciles are each subdivided into 10 portfolios based on ranked values of These approaches address either cross sectional or time-series dependence, but not both (see Petersen 2009). Correlation matrix: this SAS macro generates the time-series average of cross-sectional correlation matrix. In other words, there is a serial correlation between the residuals in the model. P Application of asset pricing models: evidence from Saudi exchange. BE The simple βs are estimated by regressing the 1941–1990 sample of post‐ranking monthly returns for a size portfolio on the current month's value‐weighted NYSE portfolio return. Betas versus characteristics: A practical perspective. with returns for July of t to June of The FM regressions in Table III confirm the importance of book‐to‐market equity in explaining the cross‐section of average stock returns. ( The Accounting Review ) 1 We can also report that β shows no power to explain average returns (the average slopes are typically less than 1 standard error from 0) in FM regressions that use various combinations of β with size, book‐to‐market equity, leverage, and ) t Average returns on small (low ME) stocks are too high given their β estimates, and average returns on large stocks are too low. is not a proxy for expected returns. are both needed to explain the cross‐section of average returns.
