Abstract

A number of recent papers have developed multifactor extensions of the classic consumption capital asset pricing model (CCAPM) and generally concluded that conditioning information improves the empirical performance. This paper asks whether the superior empirical performance of the multifactor CCAPMs is maintained once the time-series intercept restrictions are explicitly tested. The maximum correlation portfolio (MCP) approach is employed to implement the intercept restrictions. The empirical findings support the conclusion that multifactor CCAPMs can explain the cross-section of expected stock returns better than classic unconditional models. Moreover, several of the multifactor CCAPMs are shown to perform as well as or better than the Fama-French three-factor model. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
