Accordingly, factor-mimicking portfolios are formed by taking long positions in backwardated contracts and short positions in contangoed contracts according to either term structure, hedging pressure or momentum signals. The resulting portfolio returns are able to predict changes in the investment opportunity set of agents over long horizons in a way that is consistent with rational pricing by risk-adverse investors. Relative to several traditional implementations of the ICAPM, the proposed specification prices reasonably well a large cross-section of assets that include stocks, fixed income securities and commodity futures contracts.
