## Asset Pricing: A Structural Theory and Its Applications by Bing Cheng

By Bing Cheng

Smooth asset pricing versions play a critical position in finance and financial idea and purposes. This e-book introduces a structural idea to judge those asset pricing types and throws gentle at the life of fairness top class Puzzle. in keeping with the structural concept, a few algebraic (valuation-preserving) operations are built in asset areas and pricing kernel areas. This has a crucial implication resulting in useful assistance in portfolio administration and asset allocation within the international monetary undefined. The publication additionally covers issues, reminiscent of the position of over-confidence in asset pricing modeling, dating of the portfolio coverage with choice and consumption-based asset pricing types, and so forth.

In other words, ∀x ∈ X, E[yx] = E[my x]. Now we deﬁne a mapping S from X to M by S : y ∈ X → my ∈ M. 16) First we show that S is a single-valued mapping. Suppose there are two mappings, say my and my , satisfying ∀x ∈ X, E[yx] = E[my x] and E[yx] = E[my x]. This implies that E[(my − my )x] = 0, ∀x ∈ X. This means that my −my ⊥X. Let m0 be the correctly pricing SDF in M . Then we know that m0 +(my −my ) is also correctly pricing for X. By the uniqueness of correctly pricing SDF, we have my − my = 0.

37. 6. In either case, if we consider a small but economically feasible CRRAbased SDF candidate space, M5 for example, then we will not able to ﬁnd a correctly pricing SDF for the risky asset - S&P 500. However, if we enlarge the candidate space from M5 to the bigger space M75 , then we will ﬁnd a correctly pricing SDF, but this creates the so-called Equity Premium Puzzle. We can envisage that if we use the CRRA-based SDF to price more complex asset spaces, larger pricing errors will ensue. 1) has revealed that in order to ﬁnd a correctly pricing SDF, we should not exaggerate its parameter space beyond its reasonable range, but rather, given the structure of the asset space, we should enlarge the SDF candidat space by incorporating further appropriate economic state variables.

This is a contradiction. Thus, F ≡ X ∗ . We turn to suﬃciency next. 1, there is a unique correctly pricing SDF m in X. Let pricing functional π be induced by m. 20 Chapter 2. 1: The Uniqueness Theorem of the minimum correctly pricing functional space. That is ∀x ∈ X, π(x) = E[mx]. Then π is a CPF in F = X ∗ . Suppose there are two CPFs, say π1 and π2 , in F . When X = n , since π1 (xi ) = π2 (xi ) for i = 1, · · · , n and n = span{x1 , · · · , xn }, we have π1 = π2 in F . When X = ¯ , ∀x ∈ X, let xn ∈ n satisfy xn → x in X.
