Update i

Update I

Applied adjusted price and adjusted volume for Reference price, Capital gain overhang (Gt) computation

adjusted price = unadjusted prc/cum adjusting factor( dsf.cfacpr)

adjusted volume = unadjusted vol* cum vol adj factor ( dsf.cfacshr)

Used to compute correct reference price


Updates ii

Updates II

Fixed incorrect capital gain overhang values

Due to incomplete CRSP mutual fund database, some mutual funds holding reports include 0 as total market value when its number of shares and stock price are both positive.

Corrected: Now, only 2 missing value exist out of millions of observations


Update iii

Update III

  • Formed portfolio in terms of Gt, CAR using SAS and divided that into quintile.

  • Computed one month rolling portfolio


Progress in matlab

Progress in MATLAB

  • Calculated holding period (1&2-months) returns with adjusted price

  • Calculated the 1&2-month portfolio excess return, regressed to get monthly alpha for each quintile

  • Running time was around 190 min for 1-month portfolio excess return calculation and around 120min for the 2-month portfolio excess return


Assumption we ve made

Assumption we’ve made

  • For delisting events, we currently assumed 100% loss incurred

    • Technically, holding period return value can be refined by calculating delisting returns and investing risk-free assets for the last month of the rolling period

    • Adopted 100% loss for simplicity

    • Will improve later

  • Table join is costly

Quintiles classification

Quintiles Classification


Regression

Regression

Time-series averages of excess monthly returns, in excess of CRSP market index

where R is the portfolio’s return rate, Rf is the risk-free return rate, and Mkt is the return of the whole stock market.

Rf and Mkt downloaded from Ken French’s online data library,http://mba.tuck.dartmouth.edu/pages/faculty/ken.french/data_library.html#BookEquity

Questions

Questions ?


Calculate holding period return

Calculate holding period return

First, need to get the first trading day of each month( called mindate)

Secondly, integrate CAR and Gt over all the available data set, and compute Gt at mindates

CAR values available at earning report dates

Gt values meaningful at mindates.

Calculate the adjusted price difference, return for each stocks in quintile

Calculation of returns and alphas
