Cochrane, John H. Read it at least three times. The first time through, just understand the notation and the statement of the theorems. Find the GMM estimate defined, standard errors, test statistics. Get ready to use GMM. The second time through, read the "if" part of the proofs. Understand the stationarity, ergodicity, etc.

They matter! Finally, try to read the proofs. Hansen and Singleton is the crucial application to the consumption based model.

GMM Notes is a written version of my notes for the lectures. It's not exactly one to one, I condensed the lectures. The lectures and pdfs of the whiteboards should be enough.

This is one place to turn if those are confusing, and hence just an optional resource. The Brief Parable of Overdifferencing is a good example for the "Choosing a W matrix" lecture, showing you how statistical efficiency can lead to bad estimators.

Don't miss the Appendix on Recursive Utility. My lecture covered a lot of papers. Here are the original papers. They are not required reading for this class, as the lectures are self contained. But you do need to know just what the papers are you're learning about, and you should read these if you want to pursue the topic further.

Cochrane John H. Asset Pricing

Note, I left out a lot! There is a whole resurgent interest in "rare disasters" that I have not covered. Some of this is an attempt to understand the financial crisis, a worthy subject.

The big question is whether such frictions are important for every day asset pricing.

Option Pricing In this module, we'll discuss option pricing, the Black-Scholes option-pricing formula, and empirical option pricing. Required Reading Asset Pricing Chapter Bonds In this module, we'll discuss bonds and models of the term structure of interest rates.

Optional Reading Cochrane, John H. Unless, of course, everything is i. Problems for Chapter 9? This is a case where? If there were a? In an in? Intuitively, there are no arbitrage portfolios of stocks — portfolios that dominate in every state of nature.

Problems like this generate arbitrage bounds in option pricing problems. In option pricing, though, there are strictly dominating portfolios; a call option is better in every state of nature than the portfolio that holds the stock and borrows the strike payment. No, it has to be the risk free rate, or a zero-beta rate.

Yes, even if returns are predictable. The test assets can be risky return di? Rf implies? Rf but not E Ri? Betas add in the left hand variable, but not in the right hand variable. The GRS test requires factors that are returns. Pricing errors can be correlated with betas with time-series regressions.

Not with a cross-sectional OLS regression. Cross-sectional regressions set the right hand variable — betas — orthogonal to the error term — alphas. They can again be correlated with a GLS cross-sectional regression. The cross-sectional regression with an intercept sets the average pricing error to zero. The pricing error of the equally weighted portfolio is, of course, the average pricing error.

This regression does not necessarily pass through the origin or risk free rate. E f and K is the number of factors. It is best to reserve d for the d matrix, and the two are no longer equal.

But it would be ad-hoc, not ML. Write the statistical model as just the assumption that individual returns and the market return are jointly normal, "? To make it easy, use only one test asset you can use the partitioned matrix inverse formulas to do the same thing with many test assets "?

Now, to express the same idea formally. This should remind you of the Campbell Shiller identity that you can discount a stock price by its ex-post returns. The left hand variable is the forward-spot spread in the Fama Bliss regression. The right hand term is the change in one year yield, and the holding period return on two year bonds. Now run a 27?

The left hand side is 1 — forward spot on forward spot. The right hand side gives the coe?

Imagine simulating out a huge number of data points from the VAR. Then, take only the return data, ignoring data on other variables. Run a regression of returns on lagged returns. You just have to go through and do for prices what we did for returns.

The equation for prices is, from Thus, the system — analogous to the equations in the middle of p. More about this book Co-Winner of the Paul A. The clever intuition and informal writing style make it a joy to read. Like a star athlete does with the sport, Cochrane makes it look easier than it really is.

This book was already a classic among finance scholars and on Ph. It will also prove highly useful to practitioners who seek an in-depth introduction to these tools. It will help experts in the field to consolidate their knowledge and beginners to appreciate the unity of asset pricing theory. Cochrane uses his mastery of the subject to present it in a clear and compelling manner that is easily accessible. It is a serious scholarly monograph, of interest to those who are working to advance financial theory, and it can also serve as a textbook in an advanced finance course.

It is thoughtful, inductive, and comprehensive. Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance "This is a sparkling, intuitive, makes-it-look-easier-than-it really-is, gem of a book. Cochrane's focus is the classical asset pricing models of frictionless markets and rational expectations.These arbitrage bounds disappear if one posits a distribution in which it is always possible for each security to underperform the other.

If markets are complete — if he can also download and sell claims to the individual dividends — then he can do even more.
