Leisure and long-run risks: An empirical evaluation on value premium puzzle

Xiang Zhang

The North American Journal of Economics and Finance, 2020, vol. 54, issue C

Abstract: I study the ability of a long-run risk model, with nonseparable leisure and consumption, to price the cross-section of U.S. equity returns over the 1948–2015 period. The stochastic discount factor features innovations to future leisure and consumption growth as factors. The model performs well, in terms of a variety of criteria, relative to competing models in explaining the cross-section of the spread in size and value portfolios.
