This paper considers predictive regressions in which a structural break is allowed on an unknown date. We establish novel testing procedures for asset return predictability using empirical likelihood methods based on weighted-score equations. The theoretical results are useful in practice because our unified framework does not require distinguishing whether the predictor variables are stationary or nonstationary. Simulations show that the empirical likelihood-based tests perform well in terms of size and power in finite samples. As an empirical analysis, we test asset returns predictability using various predictor variables.
