Sample text

Therefore, applications of robust and efficient filters (when thoroughly applied), in turn, will result with some abnormal returns honestly representing the unexpected components of stock returns. In short, the model specifications for normal (or expected) returns need to consider two steps:(1) to identify the essential attributes (or factors) in expected returns via model search, and (2) to apply possible filtering devices (algorithms, or statistical methodologies) in filtering the expected returns from stock returns.

Otherwise, if there is such a predictability, should one also include this variable as a systematic component in the specification of expected returns? Predictability of included variables does not necessarily imply nondiversifiability. Hence, conventional applications with model selection criteria such as information criteria with prediction errors do not necessarily identify the systematic components for the asset pricing entirely unless additional criteria for nondiversifiability of included variable(s) are attached.

Otherwise, the dichotomy of M O D E L S P E C I F I C AT I O N S 43 stock returns into systematic (nondiversifiable) components and nonsystematic firm-specific abnormal returns will not hold empirically since some firm-specific variables may be identified as statistically significant predictors included in the systematic (nondiversifiable) components. In other words, this shows a contradictory remark that the so-called firm-specific diversifiable variables are considered as necessary explanatory variables for the systematic components, which are instead nondiversifiable.
