A Simple, Consistent Estimator for Disturbance Components in Financial Models
Institute for International Economic Studies, 1989 - Capital assets pricing model - 15 pages
Many recent papers have estimated components of the disturbance term in the "market model" of equity returns. In particular, several studies of regulatory changes and other policy events have decomposed the event effects in order to allow for heterogeneity across firms. In this paper we demonstrate that the econometric method applied in some papers yields biased and inconsistent estimates of the model parameters. We demonstrate the consistency of a simple and easily-implemented alternative method.
