The equity premium and the business cycle: the role of demand and supply shocks

Peter Smith (), Steffen Sorensen () and Michael Wickens

International Journal of Finance & Economics, 2010, vol. 15, issue 2, 134-152

Abstract: This paper explores the effects of the US business cycle on US stock market returns through an analysis of the equity risk premium. We propose a new methodology based on the SDF approach to asset pricing that allows us to uncover the different effects of aggregate demand and supply shocks. We find that negative shocks are more important that positive shocks, and that supply shocks have a much greater impact than demand shocks. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
