Abstract

This study investigates whether the Fama–French three-factor asset pricing model is applicable for explaining cross-sectional returns of stocks listed in the Baltic stock exchanges. Findings confirm the validity and economic significance of the three-factor model for the Baltic stock market: only investors who chose to invest in value stocks during the reference period achieved positive returns by matching or beating the returns of the stock market index. The monthly returns of 8 Latvian, 13 Estonian and 27 Lithuanian company stocks are analyzed for the time period from June 2002 till February 2010 by the methodology presented in Davis, Fama, and French (2000). Cross-sectional multivariate regression is calculated with stock portfolios representing the book-to-market and capitalization of companies as independent variables along with the stock market index. The study concludes that these three factors in the three-factor model are statistically significant, but, in line with earlier studies, regression intercepts are significantly different from zero and the model is not statistically confirmed.p>
