  title={Asset Prices with Investor Protection and Survival Analysis of Shareholders in the Cross-Sectional Economy},
  author={Jia Yue and Ming-hui Wang and Nan-Jing Huang and Ben-Zhang Yang},
In this paper, we consider a dynamic asset pricing model in a cross-sectional economy with two firms where a controlling shareholder cannot divert output in one firm with perfect investor protection for minority shareholders and where he can divert a fraction of output in the other firm with imperfect protection. After obtaining the parameters of asset prices by solving the shareholders’ consumptionportfolio problems in equilibrium, our model features the effect of investor protection and cross…

Investor Protection and Corporate Valuation
We present a model of the effects of legal protection of minority shareholders and of cash-f low ownership by a controlling shareholder on the valuation of firms. We then test this model using a
Investor Protection, Equity Returns, and Financial Globalization
Abstract We study the effects of investor protection on stock returns and portfolio allocation decisions. In our theoretical model, if investor protection is weak, wealthy investors have an incentive
Agency Conflicts, Investment, and Asset Pricing
The separation of ownership and control allows controlling shareholders to pursue private benefits. We develop an analytically tractable dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model to study asset
Investor Protection and Asset Prices
Empirical evidence suggests that investor protection has significant effects on ownership concentration and asset prices. We develop a dynamic asset pricing model to address the empirical
Corporate Governance and Equity Prices
Corporate-governance provisions related to takeover defenses and shareholder rights vary substantially across firms. In this paper, we use the incidence of 24 different provisions to build a
Equilibrium Investment and Asset Prices under Imperfect Corporate Control
We integrate a widely accepted version of the separation of ownership and control—Michael Jensen's (1986) free cash flow theory—into a dynamic equilibrium model, and study the effect of imperfect
A General Equilibrium Entrepreneurial Theory of Firm Formation Based on Risk Aversion
We construct a theory of competitive equilibrium under uncertainty using an entrepreneurial model with historical roots in the work of Knight in the 1920s. Individuals possess labor which they can
Dynamic Equilibrium with Two Stocks, Heterogeneous Investors, and Portfolio Constraints
We study dynamic equilibrium in a Lucas economy with two stocks, two heterogeneous constant relative risk aversion investors, and portfolio constraints. We focus on margin and leverage constraints,
Margin-Based Asset Pricing and Deviations from the Law of One Price
In a model with multiple agents with different risk aversions facing margin constraints, we show how securities’ required returns are characterized both by their beta and their margins. Negative
Asset Pricing with Heterogeneous Beliefs
This article studies the dynamic behavior of security prices in the presence of investors' heterogeneous beliefs. We provide a tractable continuous-time pure-exchange model and highlight the
