The Conditional Relation between Beta and Returns

  title={The Conditional Relation between Beta and Returns},
  author={Sri Lanka. and P. D. Nimal and Sandun D. Fernando},
The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) of Sharpe (1964), Lintner (1965), and Black (1972) (SLB) states that, in equilibrium, the expected return on a security is a positive linear function of its beta, and beta suffice to describe the cross-section of expected returns. The empirical studies on the validity of the positive beta-return relationship of the SLB model have been extensively carried out for the past four decades using average realized stock returns and an index of security returns to… 


This paper examines the applicability of the CAPM (Capital Asset Pricing Model) and conditional CAPM in the Belgrade Stock Exchange (BSE) in order to determine whether both the CAPM and conditional

Conditional Beta: Evidence from Emerging Stock Markets

Using the Pettengill et al. (1995) asset pricing model, this paper examines the relationship between conditional beta and returns in 12 emerging stock markets over the period of 2005 to 2017. In

Market Varying Conditional Risk-Return Relationship

Unlike previous studies conducted on Pakistan, this article attempts to test the validity of conditional relationship between beta and cross-sectional returns of individual securities listed in

Firm-Specific Risk and Returns in Canada

A basic tenet of modern portfolio theory has been an assumption that only systematic risk is priced in stock returns. However, Campbell et al. (2001) found that firm-level, idiosyncratic volatilities

An examination of the cross-sectional relationship of beta and return in international stock returns: evidence from emerging and developed markets

This paper will follow Pettengill et al.’s (1995) approach to examine the unconditional and conditional relationship between beta and returns from January 1995 to May 2017 in a well globally

The Dual-Beta Model: Evidence from the Malaysian Stock Market

The study analyzes the beta-return characteristic, considering the asymmetric beta behavior in the up market versus the down market for the Bursa Malaysia (BM). This study uses a sample period from

Modified Beta and Cross-Sectional Stock Returns

There exist many anomalous relationships between firm characteristics and average asset returns which are inconsistent with the predictions of the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). The size and

Capital asset pricing model and the three factor model: empirical evidence from emerging African stock markets

This thesis explores two celebrated asset pricing models by investigating whether or not the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) and the Fama-French three factor model apply in Emerging African Stock

Further Evidence on the Validity of CAPM: the Istanbul Stock Exchange Application

As one of the most important models in the finance literature, the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) assumes the existence of a positive and linear relationship between the systematic risk and



The Conditional Relation between Beta and Returns: Evidence from Sri Lanka

This paper examine the unconditional and conditional relationships between beta, size, B/M, E/P and returns in the CSE from 1995 to 2006 by using (FM) (1973) cross-sectional regression test. There is

The Cross‐Section of Expected Stock Returns

Two easily measured variables, size and book-to-market equity, combine to capture the cross-sectional variation in average stock returns associated with market 3, size, leverage, book-to-market

The Capital Asset Pricing Model: Some Empirical Tests

Considerable attention has recently been given to general equilibrium models of the pricing of capital assets. Of these, perhaps the best known is the mean-variance formulation originally developed

The Conditional Relation between Beta and Returns

Abstract Unlike previous studies, this paper finds a consistent and highly significant relationship between beta and cross-sectional portfolio returns. The key distinction between our tests and

The conditional relation between beta and returns in the Hong Kong stock market

Published results of empirical tests over the past two decades indicate that the risk-return relation in the Hong Kong stock market is negative. Such findings refute the positive risk-returnrelation

Fundamentals and Stock Returns in Japan

This paper relates cross-sectional differences in returns on Japanese stocks to the underlying behavior of four variables: earnings yield, size, book to market ratio, and cash flow yield. Alternative

The Cross Section of Expected Stock Returns
