ABSTRACT This empirical study comprises six emerging market portfolios and five industry replicating portfolios from the USA, using data from 2005 to 2014. The purpose of this study is to test the ability of the ex-ante beta against the ex-post beta using six different generalised autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (GARCH) models and the machine learning artificial neural network (ANN) to construct the ex-ante models. Whereas most studies use GARCH models for ultra-short forecasts… 

Macroeconomic Forces and Arbitrage Pricing Theory

ABSTRACT This paper tests five macroeconomic variables that have been both theorized to affect stock returns and been proven to do so in past empirical research. Those variables are risk premium,

Case Study: Reconstruction of Runoff Series of Hydrological Stations in the Nakdong River, Korea

Reliable runoff series is sine qua non for flood or drought analysis as well as for water resources management and planning. Since observed hydrological measurement such as runoff can sometimes show

Adversarial Domain Adaptation for Sensor Networks

This dissertation proposes new adversarial domain adaptation models, specifically tuned for sensor networks, that make use of Long short-term memory (LSTM) networks, both for discriminating between source and target domains and for performing the learning task.

Multi-cancer classification; an analysis of neural network complexity

Novel neural network models are introduced to address multi-cancer classification problems across several data types commonly applied in cancer prediction, including circulating miRNA expression, protein, and mRNA, and show that multiple cancers and controls can be classified accurately using the proposed models.




Comparison between the Capital Asset Pricing Model, Fama & Ferench three factors model and Arti#cial Neural Network models in predicting Tehran Stock Exchange returns is discussed in this research.

Forecasting time-varying daily betas: a new nonlinear approach

Purpose - – The purpose of this paper is to examine the predictive ability of different well-known models for capturing time variation in betas against a novel approach where the beta coefficient is

The three-factor model and artificial neural networks: predicting stock price movement in China

Examining the predictive ability of several well-established forecasting models, including dynamic versions of a single-factor CAPM-based model and Fama and French’s three-factor model, finds that each ANN model outperforms the corresponding linear model, indicating that neural networks may be a useful tool for stock price prediction in emerging markets.

Nonlinear Time-Series Analysis of Stock Volatilities

SUMMARY The absolute value of the mean-corrected excess return is used in this paper to measure the volatility of stock returns. We apply various nonlinearity tests available in the literature to

Asset Pricing

This report focuses specifically on quantitative structural asset pricing models, and some of these models provided an important base for understanding financial institutions, frictions in financial markets, liquidity, investor heterogeneity, and the potential presence of investor irrationality in some markets.
