We investigate how transaction costs change the number of firm-specific charac-teristics that are jointly significant for explaining the cross section of stock returns. We find that transaction costs increase the number of significant characteristics from six to 15. The explanation is that, as we show theoretically and empirically, combining characteristics reduces transaction costs because the...

Households with familiarity biases tilt their portfolios toward a few risky assets. The resulting mean-variance loss from portfolio underdiversification is equivalent to only a modest reduction of about 1% per year in a household’s portfolio return. However, once we consider also the effect of familiarity biases on the asset-allocation and intertemporal consumption-savings decisions, the welfare...

Volatility forecasts indicate future risk and are key inputs in financial analysis. We fore-cast the realized variance, an observable measure of volatility, of several major international stock market indices and account for the differing predictive information present in jump, continuous, and option-implied variance components. We allow for volatility spillovers of different stock markets by using...

As an investment vehicle, modern SPACs are traced back to 18-th century England where blank checks were first mentioned as blind pools during the infamous South Sea Bubble. In the United States, the Security and Exchange Commission classifies SPAC as a...

Why is the TIPS market so small? We show that a rational agent, dynamically investing into multiple asset classes over a 20-year horizon, benefits by 1.2% per annum from having access to inflation-indexed bonds. However, if the investor suffers from money illusion, the perceived certainty equivalent gains reduce to less than 0.3%. Furthermore, the benefits become totally negligible if the money-...

The U.S. economy witnessed several periods of booms and busts specific to the housing market. We generalize the Housing CCAPM by incorporating rare disasters into the dynamics of non-housing consumption and rare booms and busts into housing consumption, and by assuming Epstein-Zin, rather than time-additive, preferences. We extend existing Cumulant Generating Function-based pricing formulas to a...

Using an event study approach at the stock level, we examine the effect of North Atlantic hurricanes on U.S. stocks. We document a substantial economic impact of hurricanes on the aggregate market: an accumulated loss of 0.522% (6.264% annualized) to 30 days post-landfall. For Industry Portfolios encompassing the entire U.S. stock market, we document several patterns. Many manufacturingbased and...
