Heteroskedasticity in Stock Returns
G. Schwert and
Paul J Seguin
Journal of Finance, 1990, vol. 45, issue 4, 1129-55
The authors use predictions of aggregate stock return variances from daily data to estimate time-varying monthly variances for size-ranked portfolios. The authors propose and estimate a single factor model of heteroskedasticity for portfolio returns. This model implies time-varying betas. Implications of heteroskedasticity and time-varying betas for tests of the capital asset pricing model are then documented. Accounting for heteroskedasticity increases the evidence that risk-adjusted returns are related to firm size. The authors also estimate a constant correlation model. Portfolio volatilities predicted by this model are similar to those predicated by more complex multivariate generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity procedures.
