An intertemporal model for the capital market is deduced from the portfolio selection behavior by an arbitrary number of investors who aot so as to maximize the expected utility of lifetime consumption and who can trade continuously in time. Explicit demand functions for assets are derived, and it is shown that, unlike the one-period model, current demands are affected by the possibility of uncertain changes in future investment opportunities. After aggregating demands and requiring market… 
Capital Asset Pricing in a General Equilibrium Framework
The striking and powerful conclusions of the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) [13,8] arise from imposing the requirement that optimal individual portfolio decisions must be consistent with a market
The Intertemporal Capital Asset Pricing Model with Time-Varying Conditional Covariances
Merton (1973) derives an intertemporal capital asset pricing model (ICAPM) and that has formed the basis for much empirical research. The model predicts that an asset's expected return depends on its
Capital Asset Pricing for Markets with Intensity Based Jumps
This paper proposes a unified framework for portfolio optimization, derivative pricing, modeling and risk measurement in financial markets with security price processes that exhibit intensity based
CAPITAL ASSET PRICING MODEL
The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) of William Sharpe (1964) and John Lintner (1965) marks the birth of asset pricing theory (resulting in a Nobel Prize for Sharpe in 1990). Four decades later,
Intertemporal production and asset pricing: a duality approach
This paper analyzes a firm's intertemporal optimization problem under uncertainty and presents a new asset pricing model from the vantage point of the production side of the economy using the duality
Intertemporal Asset Pricing: Preliminary Evidence from an Emerging Economy
In this paper, we test a simple Merton-style (1973) intertemporal capital asset pricing model (ICAPM) by allowing for time variations in certain key state variables for a sample of firms listed on
Intertemporal CAPM and the Cross-Section of Stock Returns
This paper examines whether the historically high returns associated with the size effect, the book-to-market effect, and the momentum effect can be explained within an asset pricing framework
Intertemporal Asset Pricing with Heterogeneous Consumers and without Demand Aggregation
Consumer heterogeneity raises two problems in the derivation of the intertemporal asset-pricing model. First, it is implausible to assume that all assets' returns are multivariate normal (or exhibit
