ORIE 4630 — D. Ruppert Homework #7 — due Friday, Oct 15, 2010 Note: Students are required to work independently on homework. 1. In this problem you will fit the Fama-French three-factor model to monthly returns. The values of the Fama-French factors were taken from Professor Kenneth French’s web page and are in a text file FamaFrench mon 69 98.txt . This text file has the following variables: date , Mkt.RF which is the excess monthly return on the mar- ket, SMB which is the small-minus-large factor, HML which is the high-minus-low fac- tor, and RF which is the risk-free rate. The monthly stock returns are in the data set CRSPmon in R ’s library Ecdat . Run the following R code, that fits a regression model with the three Fama-French factors as predictor variables. Returns and rates in FamaFrench mon 69 98.txt are as percentages and returns in CRSPmon are as frac- tions, so the latter are converted to percentages. The first two years of data are not used in this analysis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
