A note on an interpretation to consumption-based CAPM

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 443-445
The consumption-based CAPM pricing rule is sometimes interpreted as implying that the price of an asset with a random payoff falls short of its expected payoff if and only if the random payoff positively correlates with consumption. This note demonstrates that this interpretation to C-CAPM is not generally correct. More importantly, it investigates under what qualifications this intuitive interpretation still holds.
