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… Expand

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.
