A Unified Framework for Value and Momentum

This paper provides a simple unifying framework for value and momentum effects in asset pricing based on the present value model. Backing out reliable expected returns from the present value model requires valuation ratios that adjust for expected future earnings growth. We show empirically that stock price momentum forecasts future growth, helps to improve value’s forecast for expected returns, and is drowned out when accounting for realized growth.

Biases in Long-Horizon Predictive Regressions

This paper derives the small sample bias of estimators in J horizon predictive regressions, providing a plug-in adjustment for these estimators. A number of surprising results emerge, including a higher bias for overlapping than nonoverlapping regressions despite the greater number of observations and particularly higher bias for an alternative long-horizon predictive regression commonly advocated for in the literature.

Optimal Currency Hedging for International Equity Portfolios

We explore currency exposures in international equity portfolios by decomposing the optimal currency portfolio into a “hedge portfolio,” which minimizes equity volatility, and an “alpha seeking portfolio” based on the well-documented currency styles of value, momentum and carry.

Long Horizon Predictability: A Cautionary Tale

We show there is much less evidence of long-horizon return predictability than existing research suggests, casting doubt over claims about forecasts based on stock market valuations and factor timing.

The Complexity of Liquidity: The Extraordinary Case of Sovereign Bonds

We analyze the cross-section of developed countries’ bond spreads.We show that under certain conditions, especially credit deterioration and flight to quality, new issue, and more liquid, bond spreads tighten and become cheaper, not more expensive, relative to their less liquid counterparts.
