Asset pricing

Research Details:
Current research focuses on decomposing risk factors and finding out which component(s) earn the risk premium. More intuitively, the research provides testable restrictions for theories of some particular risk premiums. Meanwhile, the research shows that stocks can be partitioned into those earn the risk premiums and those that do not. The finding improves constructing pricing factors in existing pricing models such as the q-theory and the five-factor models. It also helps to create a more efficient trading strategy
