We study a consumption-based asset pricing model with ‘good’ and ‘bad’ uncertainties. Good and bad uncertainties are characterized by two gamma distributions with time-varying shape parameters and they respectively represent potentially fat-tailed, skewed positive and negative innovations to consumption growth. The representative agent has generalized disappointment aversion preferences. We show that disappointment aversion is important for generating a low risk-free rate and high equity premium, and additionally, while the influence of the elasticity of intertemporal substitution (EIS) on equity premium is negligible, the EIS is important for delivering reasonable implications on the market prices of the two uncertainty components.
