Example text

In short, the model specifications for normal (or expected) returns need to consider two steps:(1) to identify the essential attributes (or factors) in expected returns via model search, and (2) to apply possible filtering devices (algorithms, or statistical methodologies) in filtering the expected returns from stock returns. For brevity, the applications of robust filters for the expected returns will be discussed in Part 2 of this book. Many research papers had discussed the applications of different model specifications for expected returns.

Certainly, another alternative for model search is to consider the model selection criteria such as AIC, or BIC, among others. Unfortunately, model selection criteria are only to satisfy the role as selecting statistically significant explanatory variables for the regression models of interest. For model search in asset pricing models or normal returns in stock returns, additional properties with concerns on nondiversifiability for explanatory variables must be considered. Otherwise, the dichotomy of M O D E L S P E C I F I C AT I O N S 43 stock returns into systematic (nondiversifiable) components and nonsystematic firm-specific abnormal returns will not hold empirically since some firm-specific variables may be identified as statistically significant predictors included in the systematic (nondiversifiable) components.

Selection of these firms may not necessarily be easier than the model selection among all alternatives for normal (or expected) returns. Nevertheless, the finding in Thompson (1989) actually indicates that controversies in 40 A N A LY Z I N G E V E N T S T A T I S T I C S I N C O R P O R A T E F I N A N C E obtaining the abnormal returns through different methods of specifying normal (or expected) returns must be resolved so that certain principles are devised for consistency in empirical findings of the corporate events.
